Stagecoach Hush Puppies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by CandyTX

No egg or milk in this because this is how they were made while "on the trail". I got this from a recipe book from a museum we visited recently. Made them and they were pretty good! A little thick, definitely not fluffy!

Really love how authentic these are and they taste wonderful. I went to a certain Stagecoach Inn many times when I lived in Texas, wonderful food and these taste really good. I think boiling the water like when you are making polenta is the key here. Really turned out great. Thanks for posting.
