How To Make Hushpuppies

A staple of Southern fried food in the United States, hushpuppies are an extremely popular snack consisting of deep-fried cornmeal batter.

The batter is sometimes enriched by the addition of onions, garlic, corn, and peppers

Hushpuppies are best when served steaming hot with tartar sauce or a smoked trout dip, while some claim that a glass of crisp sparkling wine proves to be the best accompaniment.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup sugar

Kosher salt

1 cup cornmeal

3/4 cup self-rising flour

Peanut oil, for frying

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE HUSHPUPPIES

Whisk together the eggs, sugar, and salt, to taste, in a large bowl. 

In a separate bowl, whisk together the cornmeal and flour. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined and the batter is thick.

In a Dutch oven or pan, heat enough oil for deep frying to 360 degrees F.

Working in batches, drop the batter using 1 tablespoon or a small ice cream scoop at a time, into the oil.

Careful to not overcrowd the pot. Fry until deep golden on all sides, turning in the oil for even cooking, about 5 minutes. 

Transfer the hushpuppies to a paper towel-lined dish and sprinkle with salt while hot.
