“Hush puppies are a great Southern tradition along with buttermilk coleslaw and Southern-fried catfish. Why not use all that buttermilk together in all your recipes? Try them all!” - by Mama Smith
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Heat 1 quart vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
- Whisk buttermilk, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, and eggs in a bowl.
- Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Fold buttermilk mixture, onion, and green onions into cornmeal mixture until just mixed.
- Drop 6 to 8 tablespoon-sized balls of batter into the hot oil; fry until each hush puppy is golden brown, turning the hush puppies to cook evenly, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove hush puppies with a slotted spoon and place on brown paper bags to drain. Repeat with any remaining batter.
- Transfer hush puppies to a baking sheet and keep warm in the preheated oven until ready to serve.

I liked this recipe because I don't keep self-rising flour on hand and I didn't want to h..." See moreave to think about the conversion with salt & baking soda because it was already taken care of in the recipe. Also, I used plain milk and added a little vinegar to make buttermilk. Even with the substitutions, they came out delicious."
