Vicki's Hush Puppies

Serves: 8

Hush puppies are a good Louisiana side for seafood. This recipe called for self-rising cornmeal and I adjusted the recipe because I couldn't find it! If you have self-rising cornmeal, use 1 cup in place of the cornmeal, baking powder, and salt.

Total Time:


2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large onion, diced
1 cup self-rising flour
3/4 cup + 3 tablespoons cornmeal
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 quart oil for frying


In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, and onion. Blend in flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt.

Heat 2 inches of oil to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls in hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Cook in small batches to maintain oil temperature. Drain briefly on paper towels. Serve hot.
