Cajun Hush Puppies

"This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT9 – Cajun/Creole. This recipe is from cookbook Cajun Cooking by Better Homes and Gardens. It is said that early settlers hushed their barking dogs by tossing them these bready little morsels. I know I'd stop barking for a few of these....Yum!!"

    Very nice. I could taste the brown sugar in these. made for a lunch snack for DS and I. Didn't change a thing . Made as directed. Made for Holiday Tag.
    These are very good but *very* rich! I liked that little bit of sweetness from the brown sugar. We served ours with ranch dip. I had to skip the green onions and replace with onion powder so that 6-year old ~Tasty Dish~ would try these. I set aside a small bowl of ranch dip with green onions stirred in for mine and husband's hush puppies. Made for Best of 2013.


I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
