Baked Hush Puppies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

Here's a healthier alternative to the usual deep-fried hush puppies. I think these look like mini corn muffins, but they taste the way a hush puppy should. Originally from an August 1983 issue of Bon Apetit from "The Cook's Exchange Readers' Best Recipes".

My late wife was a great cook of Southern food, but hush puppies eluded her. Since I don't deep fry anything, decided to try these, and they were better than anything she cooked for me. Not quite like the real thing, but very good.
