YUM, YUM, YUM! Not for those with week taste buds. These lil buggers are tasty! I used Spicy V-8 for the tomato juice and tiny bit of extra cayenne and I think it added a little extra zing. I also made a Pepper Jack Cheese Dipping Sauce and I just could not stop eating them! (This of course led to quenching the fire with a nice cold Heineken or three) Hushpuppies, you have met your match!! Thanks Barbara for a GREAT recipe!!

These were very simple to make and required very little effort. I used the spicy V-8 in place of the tomato juice. They were very well received by the guys at the table. I thought that they were good but that they were missing something. I have yet to figure out what that is, but I will make again and experiment. I served them with Tweeky's Fiery Cajun Shrimp #33005.

These were very good, not too hot, just kind of an afterburn. After the first batch, I added cheddar cheese to the batter, then added a bit more salt and that really made a difference. I used spicy V8 for the tomato juice as other reviewers suggested, and next time I'll use just a bit more cayenne for more of a bite.

These are great! I made a second batch and added cheese and they became better. The cayenne is perfect.

These were yummy, but I do agree they were sort of missing something. I used tomato paste and water instead of tomato juice and also added garlic powder. They puff so much when fried that the dough balls need to be the size of marbles. Great idea--maybe adding grated cheddar is the solution?? I served them as an appetizer to a simple cajun dinner and they were a hit! Thanks!
