I thought this recipe would taste like a local restaurant's hushpuppies, so I tried it with a few small changes. I know how sweet jiffy mixes are, so I used 1 jiffy mix and added 1 cup self rising yellow cornmeal in place of the 2nd jiffy mix. I also added 1/2 cup buttermilk as the ingredients were very dry. I left the eggs and onions the same. The result was perfect! Just a hint of sweetness and perfect crispy outside and light inside. DELICIOUS!

Great recipe! Made with cornbread mix instead, do not believe in "sweet" hush puppies.

This takes the work out of making hush puppies! It is the perfect recipe for folks who prefer the sweet hush puppy. I used 1 package Jiffy and one egg to reduce the amount of hush puppies for 3 of us. I left the 1/4 cup of onions and added 1/4 cup chopped green pepper. They were WONDERFUL! Thanks for a quite easy and inexpensive recipe! The jiffy mix is about 33 cents per box!

This truly was very easy to make and came out nicely! I made 1 1/2 batch and used 1 cup corn meal to cut the sweet taste a little, as well as added a 4 oz. can of diced green chiles. The result was a mild, yet really tasty, fried side dish treat! I decided to make mine into little flat cakes instead of round balls because of limited oil and it turned out great! More like hush puppy fritters. I definitely plan to make this again! Thank you, Ms. Summers!

Excellent recipe! I always have Jiffy cornbread mix on hand, and this was just as easy as could be. Tasted great, too! Definitely a keeper!

I took these to a Super Bowl party where the hostess was serving gumbo. They were a huge hit. They turned out crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. I made half a batch with jalapenos and the other half with just onions. The title is correct. They are easy to make. I will be making them again.

The flavor was good, but mine completely fell apart in the fryer. The longer they cooked, the more they separated. Any idea what the problem is??? I will try AND rate again.

I made these on 3/08/09 as part of our dinner. Since there was just two of us, the recipe was cut in half. I made some for my SO first, he doesn't care for onions in his hush puppies. Then I added about 2 to 3 Tablespoons of diced onion to the rest of the batter. I'm a gal from the South,and I know hush puppies and these are some of the best I've ever had the pleasure of eating. This recipe will be made again.Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"
