I first had these when Buddha first took me to his family's fishing spot on the lake. His Aunt Brenda makes these often. I loathed hush puppies before these. Always thought them dry and bland. Not these! Wow are they yummy. Thanks Brenda!

I'm not super experienced when it comes to cooking but Brenda's hush puppies were by far, the best hush puppies I have ever made and tasted! I followed the recipe just as it is and they came out moist and flavorful with just enough sweetness, perfect! I will definitely be using this recipe again. Thank you for sharing!

My family LOVED these hush puppies! I added 2 TBSP of Baking Powder and left out the onions and jalapeños and they were PERFECT. <br/>One recipe fed our family of about18 with no leftovers whatsoever. Dad said "You need to make these again!"

I did cut the recipe in half (just the 2 of us) & almost left out the jalapeno (on purpose) before deciding to include just enough of it to know it was there, & we totally loved Brenda's hush puppies! Very, very flavorful & satisfying! Many thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
