Category: United States, Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Cornmeal
  • 1 c Plain flour
  • 1 ts Baking powder
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Soda
  • 1/2 c Parsley, finely chopped
  • Deep fat for frying
  • Ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 c Buttermilk
  • 1 c Green onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tb Bacon drippings, hot
  • 1/2 ts Garlic powder (to taste)


Combine all dry ingredients. Add eggs, buttermilk, onions,
and oil or bacon drippings. Mix well. Drop in deep hot fat
by spoonfuls and brown on all sides.
Now, I said above that this makes 48, I've never counted, so I
don't know for sure. But it sure does make a bunch. The main
reason why I said 48 is because the program, MenuMaster, won't
let you past that field unless you tell it something.
Justin Wilson says, "Hush puppy is an old Southern term that
originated after the Civil War. People didn't have enough for
themselves to eat let alone feed their dogs, so when the old
hounds started barking from hunger, they would throw pieces of
fried corn bread to them, yelling, 'Shut up, dog! Hush puppy!"
