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 large egg, slightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk, or amount needed for batter
1 to 2 tablespoons minced green onion
1 dash hot pepper sauce, optional
Freshly ground black pepper, optional, to taste
Garlic powder, optional, to taste
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
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.
Add any green onion and other optional ingredients you want, then drop teaspoonfuls into fat (about 375 F) at least 3 inches deep.
Fry until golden and drain on paper towels.
Keep warm in a low (150 F to 200 F ) oven until ready to serve.
