Yield:
2 dozen hush puppies

Ingredients

  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying, or as needed

  • ¾ cup milk

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons minced onion

  • 1 cup baking mix

  • 1 cup cornmeal

  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Whisk milk, egg, and onion together in a bowl. Stir pancake mix, cornmeal, and salt into milk mixture to form a smooth batter.

  3. Scoop ping pong ball-sized balls of batter using a small ice cream scoop; drop about 5 scoops per batch into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove hush puppies with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining batter.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
