These easy Hush Puppies are a popular Southern side dish of cornmeal batter deep-fried until golden brown and crispy. Very easy to make and fun to eat!
Hush Puppies are deep-fried balls of savory cornmeal batter. It’s a classic side dish to seafood meals, although we always ordered them in a BBQ restaurant, here in Midwest. There is really no secret to making these delicious bites! The batter is based on cornmeal and buttermilk although you can easily make a homemade version with half and half (or whole milk) and vinegar.
