Hushpuppies Recipe

Spread the love

Hushpuppies Recipe: I adore serving them with oven-roasted corn, red beans & rice, and catfish. These fried cornmeal hush puppies, or red horse bread as they are also called, are really delicious. Perhaps it has been a while since you’ve had any. Perhaps it seems to go on forever. It’s truly very easy to combine and cook them.

I prefer to cook my in my deep fryer, but a heavy stock pot or Dutch oven will work just as well. They taste great on their own or dipped in tartar or Southern Comeback Sauce.

NOTES

 

  • For hush puppies, both white and yellow cornmeal work well. White cornmeal has a hint more sweetness.

 

Advertisement
  • If you want your hush puppies to be fairly sweet, then add the entire 2 teaspoons of sugar.

 

  • Let the milk and egg come to room temperature.

 

Advertisement
  • While the oil is heating, mix the ingredients just until they are combined, then set aside the batter.

 

  • Make an effort to use a deep fryer or heavy pot with a thermometer to keep the oil temperature constant.

 

Advertisement
  • After frying them, drain them on paper towels.

 

  • Use a high-point oil such as peanut oil, canola oil, or vegetable oil.

 

Advertisement
  • Use two tablespoons to drop the hushpuppies into the fryer. Using one to gently push the spherical mound of dough off and the other to scoop it up. However do not worry if all of your hush puppies are not perfectly round as they will still taste equally delicious

 

FAQs AND QUESTIONs

How do I make husky pies?

  • In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, black pepper, and Cajun seasoning. To create buttermilk, combine your milk and vinegar in a large measuring cup or another bowl. Give it a good five minutes to settle. Add the egg, vegetable oil, and shredded onion, and mix again. After that, mix just until combined while stirring the wet components into the dry.

 

  • To avoid packing the fryer, heat the oil to 365 degrees and add the cornmeal batter in tiny batches of round tablespoons to the boiling oil. Cook for three to five minutes, or until well cooked and golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, remove them from the oil and place them on paper towels to drain.
