Family Recipe Friday - Hush Puppies

Hush puppies, if you aren't from the south, are a delicious little fried dough ball.   The standard story of how they originated is that someone's granddaddy was sitting around the campfire on a hunting trip and the dogs were barking, so they threw them one and told them to "hush, puppy." 

Grandma's recipe


  1. Yum! I've only had them from a fast food place (Long John Silver's) and I bet these are much better!

  2. Being from Australia, I had never heard of "Hush Puppies" but I have saved the recipe and will try them.

    Thank you.

  3. Here in the UK hush puppies are shoes older folk wear. I'm certain your hush puppies will taste loads better! They look great!
