Hush Puppies

Southern fisherman would finish a day of fishing by cleaning and cooking the fish on the banks of the river. Leftover breading mixture would be mixed with water and fried in the grease along with the fish. This was then tossed to the dogs with the admonition "Hush Puppies!" The original recipe has been refined into the tasty version we have today- fit for man or beast.

Hush Puppies

1 cup corn meal
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 pinch baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1 tablespoon Oil
Oil or shortening for frying

Combine buttermilk, pinch of baking soda, egg, onion, and 1 T oil. Sift together the dry ingredients and mix into the buttermilk mixture.  Stir until well mixed.  Drop from the end of a  spoon into deep hot fat (350 degrees) until golden brown.  Drain on paper towels.  Serve with fish.
