These deep fried cornmeal hush puppies are made with minced green onion and a dash of hot pepper sauce and garlic.


  • 1 cup self-rising white cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 egg (slightly beaten)
  • 1 cup buttermilk (more or less)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons green onion (minced)
  • Optional: dash hot pepper sauce
  • Optional: pepper or garlic powder

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine the cornmeal and flour with the salt and sugar. Blend in the egg and add enough buttermilk to make a thick batter that will drop slowly but easily from a spoon.

  2. Add any green onion and other optional ingredients you want, then drop teaspoonfuls into fat (about 375 degrees) at least 3 inches deep.

  3. Fry until golden and drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a low (150° F to 200° F ) oven until ready to serve.
