    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat oil in a heavy skillet (about 2- 2 1/2 inches of oil) until hot.
    2. 2
      Beat the egg and then mix in the remaining ingredients.
    3. 3
      Make sure that your dry ingredients are all moist.
    4. 4
      Using a tablespoon, drop balls of batter into the hot oil, about 2 inches long by 1 inch thick.
    5. 5
      NOTE: I usually only cook about 4 or 5 at a time.
    6. 6
      These should float in the hot oil, but not be covered by it.
    7. 7
      You will need to turn these as they cook.
    8. 8
      Fry until they are a golden brown and then drain them on paper towels.
    9. 9
      Serve with fish- of course!

      This little cornbread treats are a true Southern delight. I made mine with chopped green onions (the recipe call for onions) for a little color in these golden balls. They fried up nicely and were a nice treat with pinto beans. Absolutely worth going to the extra effort of frying!! Thanks, MG, for a wonderful Southern, country treat.

      Very good. I added some garlic (just because I like it) and a little parsley for color. We really enjoyed them. The DH said it reminded him of Grandmas in Georgia. Thanks MG.

      I was so happy to find this recipe. I was raised in south Georgia, and besides not including finely diced celery, this is exactly like the ones my Grandma used to make. Thanks MysteryGirl
