Hush Puppies

Hush Puppies

Hush Puppies with a crispy, golden outside and soft, cornbread inside infused with bacon, pepper Jack cheese dunked in the most tantalizing sweet and tangy Sweet Chili Dijon Sauce! Are you drooling yet? Hush Puppies are one of the most crave worthy morsels ever – and this hush puppies recipe is one of the world’s easiest appetizers to make! You can make hush puppy batter ahead of time and refrigerate for easy assembly, or make and either refrigerate or freeze the hush puppies for an almost instant/snack appetizer at a cravings notice. Hush puppies are little balls of deep-fried cornmeal, about the same size as a meatball or a scoop of raw cookie dough aka deep fried cornbread balls with seasonings.

You just need about a half dozen ingredients for this hush puppies recipe. While there are some small variations (like onion powder instead of onion shavings, garlic powder, or even no onion at all), most people use cornmeal, wheat flour, baking powder, salt and milk or buttermilk as well as eggs. I, of course, add a punch of flavor with the addition of bacon and Pepper Jack cheese. The best part about this hush puppy appetizer is how simple the ingredient list is, and how delicious they taste! Cornmeal, eggs, milk or buttermilk and a couple of other ingredients make this deep-fried dish complete. I add bacon to my hush puppy recipe, but this isn’t traditional and of course optional- but totally delicious and truly irresistible!
