Have you ever made hushpuppies? Do you have a good recipe? If so, please share.

I think I would like to try to make some but I haven't run across a recipe.

  • Well, I don't know the exact measurements, I usually eyeball everything except when baking. 2 cups Cornmeal, a tbsp or so of flour, diced onion (to taste), about a half a tbsp of sugar, half tbsp of mayo, an egg, and buttermilk or regular to desired thickness. A melon scooper or smaller ice cream scoop works wonders for getting that perfect shape and size. Fry at 350 for about 3-4 mins or until you have that nice golden brown. Also you can add corn or jalapeƱo peppers to it if you like.salt and pepper to taste also.
