A fried corn cake with onion, bell pepper, and tomato in the batter.
- 1 1⁄2 cups self-rising cornmeal
- 1⁄4 cup self-rising flour
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 2 onions, finely chopped
- 1 medium green bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1 tomatoes, finely chopped
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄8 teaspoon hot sauce
- 1⁄2 cup beer
- vegetable oil
- Combine the first 3 ingredients in large bowl; stir well.
- Add onion, pepper, and tomato. Stir in the egg, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and beer; stir well.
- Pour oil to the depth of 2 inches in a heavy skillet. Heat oil to 375°F.
- Carefully drop the batter by rounded teaspoonful into hot oil.
- Fry the hush puppies a few at a time for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden, turning once. Drain well on paper towels.
I doubled the recipe, replaced the Worcestershire with hot sauce, added 2 tablespoons of garlic powder and a can of drained whole cornel corn. It fed a 2 company fire station with nothing left over. Excellent!
