Hush Puppies 1 Picture


  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • Pinch of paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper
  • Peanut oil for frying



Step 1

Mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and buttermilk. Combine wet and dry ingredients, and use your hands to form 1/2″ round balls.

Heat your oil in a large skillet or deep fryer. You want your oil to be deep enough that the puppies can be totally immersed. You’ll know when your oil is hot enough if bubbles form around a wooden spoon.

Drop each ball into the fryer. Use a spoon to push them around so they’re sure to get cooked on both side. Cook until golden brown- 3 or 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels so they can dry through and through.
