Hush Puppies Recipe

  • Vegetable oil for frying hush puppies
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup flour or make Gluten Free by using GF Flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup minced white onion
  • 2 large green onions, diced

Notes About Hush Puppies:

  • These are easy to make. Time is minimal to mix up, maybe 10 minute by the time you cut the onions. Cooking is done often in batches, so that can take a little more time. One batch for me was about 5 hush puppies and I cooked them for 5-7 minutes each batch.
  • There is sugar in these, so they have a little sweet to them.
  • I like mine dipped in a little vinegar

Gluten Free Hush Puppies
