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 jalapeƱo as others have suggested to see if they are even better when spicy !

Well, we had fun with these! I tried the 'spoon' method but the puppies got kind of crumby before they came off of the spoon, which they didn't do easily, and I had to flip them. About half way through, I took small spoonfuls of batter, rolled between my palms like a meatball, then gently dropped into the oil. It worked perfectly and they flipped over all by themselves! They were very tasty but a little sweet; I think I will add some cayenne next time.

Well, it only took me about 25 years (and probably 2 tons of cornmeal) to find the perfect hush puppy recipe... I've tried many that tasted okay, but they always came up short in the texture department. These were perfection -- crisp and golden outside and incredibly light inside. It must be the breadcrumbs, because that's a most unusual addition. I used 1 T. of sugar and pickled jalapenos instead of bell pepper, otherwise following the recipe exactly. BeachGirl, these little puppies are fantastic!

These are completely and totally wonderful. Light, airy, sweet and savory. I added a bit of garlic salt and Old Bay seasoning and they were the perfect complement to fried, panko-breaded fresh-caught Alaskan halibut. We are very serious about our fish-fries when we have halibut, and these will be on the menu from now on!

Oh my goodness, these are good. I loved the grated onion, it helped distribute throughout the entire batter. I also shredded my yellow pepper so it wasn't such big chunks....delicious. My kids always want to go to that popular chain restaurant just for the hushpuppies and now I can make them at home. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

Wow, great recipe. Crisp and extremely tender outside, soft inside, cooked through well, not doughy. I love sweet hushpuppies so the sugar was perfect. The entire family loved them, my boys are 3 and 4 and I have deprived them of hush puppies til now, they won't let me forget to make them from now on. Wow. Thanks!
