This recipe is from Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Kitchen, published back in the early '80s and makes some of the best hushpuppies I have ever eaten; and I DO love good hush puppies.

These hushpuppies were really good. I loved the spices. They had a lot more flavor than the average hushpuppy. Thanks!

Best hushpuppies I've ever had. My British husband went crazy for them. Thank you so much!
