This is a very tasty soup to start your meal with. My daddy loved this dish and would sometimes make a meal of it. I think of him everytime I make this. So I am posting this recipe in honor of his memory. I miss you, daddy.

How to Make Bea's Green Onions & Hushpuppies

Step-by-Step

  1. Green Onion Soup:
    Remove onions from package, wash, cut off end roots and cut approximately 2" in length. Use the green and white parts of the onions.
  2. Place in medium sized pot and cover with water. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add in about one tablespoon of bacon drippings (or oil if you rather).
  3. Boil for an hour or so or until tender. To serve, dip onions with broth into a bowl and break up hushpuppies into the soup.
  4. My Husband's Hushpuppies:
    In a small bowl mix in cornmeal, flour and salt. Add in enough beer to make it a tad bit soupy but not too soupy. Normally 1/2 to 2/3 can of beer is all you need. Do not overmix. Now drink the remaining beer.
  5. Don't stir anymore. Just let it set for about 10 minutes undisturbed.

    ***NOTE***: You can use tap water rather than beer.
  6. Heat shortening or oil. Stir a couple of times and then drop batter into hot grease by a tablespoon. Once they have fried for a few seconds, flip them over. Continue frying until golden brown.
