Recipe by Baby Kato

This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT9 – Cajun/Creole. This recipe is from cookbook Cajun Cooking by Better Homes and Gardens. It is said that early settlers hushed their barking dogs by tossing them these bready little morsels. I know I'd stop barking for a few of these....Yum!!

Owww weeee - it has been a long time since I made hush puppies! I'd forgotten how good they are with butter smeared on them....yum! I followed this as written and we enjoyed these as an afternoon snack! Thanks so much for sharing, Baby Kato!
