What is inside a Hush Puppie?
Hush puppies are made from a basic batter consisting of yellow cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, buttermilk or milk and eggs. Many recipes call for the addition of scallions or onions. The base lends itself to riffing, too, including the addition of spicy peppers, cheese, spices or even beer.
What was the original Hushpuppy?
Fried cornbread batter wasn’t the first food to be called “hushpuppy” either. The term was also used as a moniker for gravy or pot liquor. A story in The San Antonio Herald, in 1879, noted that a group of Texas Rangers had a campfire breakfast that included a pan of “hushpuppy gravy.”
