Cooking time: 5 minutes
Hush puppies are a traditional southern food. They're little fried cornmeal balls served as a side dish with fried fish, or just about anything.
In home cooking, slightly stale cornbread is sometimes crumbled up and used in place of cornmeal in the recipe.
They should be about 1 tablespoon in size.
- combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl;
- in a small bowl, combine the milk, egg and 2 tbsp. oil; add to the dry ingredients, mixing only until combined; add a little more milk if necessary;
- drop spoonfuls of the batter into hot oil and fry for 3 minutes or until golden brown;
- drain on paper towels; serve hot.
