SOUTHERN CORNMEAL HUSHPUPPIES

Ingredients :

  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced (can be regular or green onions)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 1 egg (Optional)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or beer
  • 1 cup cooking oil (I use Canola)

Directions :

  1. Combine cornmeal, flour, onion, salt, egg and milk.  The batter should be just wet enough that you can shape it into balls about the size of a walnut with your hands and it sticks together.  Have oil hot in a skillet and drop hushpuppies into oil.  Cook about 3 to 4 minutes browning on all sides.   Remove and drain on paper towels.  This makes about 10 to 12 hushpuppies.  You can double or triple the recipe.  Enjoy!
