North Carolina Hush Puppies Recipe

Step 1

Mix all dry ingredients together. Then add egg, buttermilk, and water. Drop by spoonful into hot deep fat. Fry to a golden brown. (If a deep pot is used, the hushpuppy will float to the top when done).

* NOTE: If you don't want to buy buttermilk, substitute 1/2 c. milk with 1 T. lemon juice added. Stir and let it sit for 5 minutes. It works just as well. Please note: You can make variations of this recipe in several ways: i.e., 1/4 c. finely chopped onion, less sugar, etc. But, at the coast of NC the above type recipe is usually served.
