    Sweet Onion Hushpuppies

    Source of Recipe

    From "The Outdoor Table" by April McKinney

    Recipe Introduction

    "if you're having a backyard fish fry, hushpuppies are a must for the menu. Grating the onion gives these hushpuppies a sweet onion flavor without overpowering them. Serve this Southern fried delicacy with tartar sauce."

    List of Ingredients

    2 cups yellow cornmeal
    1 cup self-rising flour
    2 Tbsp sugar
    1 tsp salt
    tsp baking soda
    1 tsp garlic powder
    2 large eggs, beaten
    1 cups buttermilk
    cup grated sweet onion
    cup sliced green onions
    Canola oil, for frying


    In a large bowl whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and garlic powder. Whisk in the eggs and buttermilk until they are just combined, and then stir in the sweet onions and green onions.

    Pour 2 to 3 inches of oil into a Dutch oven or electric fryer, and heat to 375F. Working in batches, drop the tablespoonsful of batter into the oil, being careful not to overcrowd.

    Let the hushpuppies fry for about 2 minutes on each side. Once they are golden brown, drain them on paper towels. Serve warm.

    Makes 28 to 30 servings
