Choice Hush Puppies Recipe

Russ Myers


For this recipe you MUST use old fashioned, stone or water ground white corn meal. Hush Puppies, it's said, were originally tag ends of cornbread dough, deep fried and tossed to dogs at mealtime to “hush them up” Serve hush puppies with seafood, especially breaded or batter fried fish.
