  • In a large mixing bowl, combine corn meal, baking powder, salt, milk, and water. Mix in egg and chopped onion.

  • Use a long handled spoon to gently slide the hush puppies into the hot oil. Cook 8 or 10 at a time, until golden brown. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon, and roll on paper towels to briefly drain. Serve hot.

These were okay. But I thought they were pretty bland. Maybe next time I will add a bit of corn and just a little sugar. Read More
