Mississippi Hush Puppies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Krista Smith

This recipe is from a flyer that I receied many years ago. I made them once and they were really tasty but I don't like to fry all that much (too much work and fat!) so I haven't made them again since. I'm going to try making them into mini muffins sometime soon!

I got this from Southern Living a few years ago. These are the very best hush puppies I have ever made! The only changes I made were to use peanut oil and seed the peppers. Very quick and easy to throw together! I have used fresh jalapenos and canned also. Try'em ..you'll never make them any other way and everyone will want the recipe~ Chef Judi Coleman
