Hush Puppies with Minced Onion


Hush Puppies with Minced Onion
These hush puppies are made with white cornmeal and minced yellow onions or sweet onions. These are delicious hush puppies for a catfish fry.


  • 2 cups sifted fine stone ground white cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon minced yellow onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons cold water


Stir corn meal, sugar, soda and salt together. Place onion in a small bowl. Add egg and buttermilk and beat until frothy. Pour all at once into the meal and stir lightly to mix. Add just enough of the cold water to make dough a good dropping. The dough should hold its shape in the spoon. Drop by tablespoonfuls into hot oil (about 350 to 360°) in deep fat fryer for about 2 minutes or until evenly browned, turning to keep all sides evenly browned.
Makes about 2 dozen.
