35 hushpuppies


Using a deep pot, preheat oil for frying to 350 degrees F.

Using a mixing bowl, stir together the cornmeal, flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the onion. In a small bowl, stir together the buttermilk and egg. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until blended. Drop the batter, 1 teaspoon at a time, into the oil. Dip the spoon in a glass of water after each hushpuppy is dropped in the oil. Fry until golden brown, turning the hushpuppies during the cooking process.

The easiest hush puppy recipes I've ever used. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were pretty yummy! Only thing is that I added about a 3/4 cup sugar and a little more salt .. Also, the batter was a little runny making it hard to put into the batter without making geometric shapes. Lastly, I wish there was a way to make them crispier. All in all they tasted good :) item not reviewed by moderator and published

I tried this recipe last night, and it is now my new favorite Hushpuppy recipe. My Brother-in-law, who "does not eat hushpuppies" ate two! I used fine stone ground cornmeal, not self-rising, and I added baking powder to compensate. I used more finely chopped onions in this recipe and deep fried them by Tablespoons at 360 degrees. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. They were light and very good. I will definitely use and share this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I wanted to make Christy Jordan's House Autry hushpuppy battered fried pork chops for dinner tonight.(I love Ms. Christy Alas, no hushpuppy mix in the house! So I took Ms. Paula's hushpuppy recipe (I love Ms. Paula too!, used only the dry ingredients, added onion powder and used the mixture for my pork chop batter, Oh my goodness, it was good! It is cheaper than using the prepared mix too! Food Network is sure going to miss my business, shame on Food Network for not renewing Ms. Paula's contract item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were amazing!! I was so grateful to find a simple recipe that tastes so much better than the local restaurants'. They are fluffy, flavorful and quick. Followed it to the letter on the recipe (first time I made it but all five people that tried them (aged 8 to 47 said they would not change a thing - except to double it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would agree with several of the other reviewers that these were somewhat bland. Having eaten a lot of hushpuppies in my life, I would say these were just okay. After cooking a couple and tasting, I did add 1 Tbsp bacon grease which helped but next time I will add some honey and Old Bay seasoning with maybe some thyme. I may also try replacing the buttermilk with beer. Also, changing the flour ratio to contain more flour should make them not quite as dry. As mentioned by some of the others, do not over mix the batter. All in all, this is a good base receipe. Personally, I liked these better cold as a snack after they had been in the refrigerator all night. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very bland and batter was too thick. I added more buttermilk and 1/2 cup sugar and they went from bland to amazing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
