    BeachGirl's Note:

    I get a kick out of seeing these hush puppies turn themselves over, and they taste great! They usually disappear before the meal. If you don't like my sweet Southern version, just omit the sugar.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Mix all ingredients together just until they are wet.
    2. 2
      Refrigerate 30 minutes to 5 hours.
    3. 3
      To cook, heat oil to about 350-375 degrees.
    4. 4
      Dip a small spoon in cold water, then get a spoonful of batter, using the side of the bowl to"break-off" the spoonful of batter from the bowl.
    5. 5
      Immediately submerge spoon in the hot oil for a few seconds until the Hush Puppy releases from the spoon.
    6. 6
      Repeat this process with each Hush Puppy, until you have 6 or 7 in the hot oil.
    7. 7
      Do not crowd the"puppies", as you do not want to lower the temperature of the hot oil.
    8. 8
      Getting the spoon wet between puppies is important, as it helps keep the batter from sticking to the spoon.
    9. 9
      If your oil is the correct temperature, the hush puppies should be golden on the outside and cooked on the inside.
    10. 10
      When golden on one side, if they automatically turn themselves over, you're cooking like a Pro.
    11. 11
      If they don't give them a little nudge to make them turn over.
    12. 12
      Possible Problems: If oil is too hot, or"raw puppies are too large", they will get too browned on the outside and be gummy or runny on the inside.
    13. 13
      If oil is not hot enough, the puppies will be greasy.
    14. 14
      I usually put 1 or 2 spoonsful of batter in the hot oil to test it before making a whole batch of these tasty little Southern treats.
    15. 15
      Adjust oil temperature as needed.
    16. 16
      Although not quite as good as when freshly cooked, I often freeze leftover hush puppies and reheat them in a toaster oven until warm.
    17. 17
      They are still mighty good.

      Delicious! I used this recipe in my first ever try to make hush puppies and they turned out great! I used skim milk, left out the peppers because I didn't have any on hand, abd added a few dashes if Cajun seasoning instead. It took ne a couple puppies to get the temperature right but once I did they were easy! Even my picky teenage brother enjoyed them. I will make these puppies again, probably with jalapeño as others have suggested to see if they are even better when spicy !
