The last time we fried catfish, I decided to try out this hush puppy recipe for a bit of a change. I used a can of mild Rotel tomatoes since I have small children, but you could use the hotter Rotel if you wish. This makes a lot of hush puppies, so you might want to halve the recipe. We really enjoyed the flavor of these...hope you will too! Recipe from Southern Living.
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; stir together just until moistened.
- Heat oil in a Dutch oven to 375°F.
- Drop teaspoonfuls of batter into the hot oil and fry 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.
