Creole Hush Puppies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dreamgoddess

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.

These were really good and my hubby really liked them but I had to leave out the corn as I can't have it. I agree that it makes a lot but hubby wanted to save leftovers because they were that good. He also wants me to try to use the recipe for baking in a pan as cornbread. Just might try it! I will use hot Rotel next time as they didn't have much zing with the mild. Thanks for a great recipe! Made for PAC 2008.
