1/2 Photos of Hush Puppies
The story of the hush puppy comes from back in the antebellum days in the south. When the planters had a fish fry, the food was cooked outdoors. The dogs would gather around and hope for a scrap of food (some things never change!). The hush puppy was originally just a piece of fried dough that was thrown to the dogs to keep them happy. The secret of a good hush puppy is the temperature of the oil. It has to be hot enough to cook, but not so hot that the outside is hard and inside is mush. If your oil is smoking, it is way too hot! Peanut oil works great, but isn't required. These are fabulous with fried fish or shrimp. **Cooking is time is for 2 batches
