When I decided to fry up some catfish for dinner the other night, hubby suggested cornbread to go with it, but I was thinking hushpuppies! I’ve never made any before, but we did have a box of jiffy cornbread mix so I thought, how hard can it be to take that and turn it into hushpuppies?
So here is my little recipe that I whipped up, and that turned out to be THE BEST TASTING HUSHPUPPIES that I’ve ever had!
- 1 pkg jiffy cornbread mix
- 8 oz. can of corn
- 1 egg
- 3 chopped green onions
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- few big pinches of salt
- few big pinches of garlic powder
- 2-3 tbsp of flour
Just grab a big bowl and mix all that together. The batter should be slightly thick and sticky, it needs to be able to hold together in the fryer.
Heat up your oil and start dropping rounded spoonfuls in. Fry them up for a few minutes until they’re a dark golden brown and enjoy!
They were sweet, cheesy, spiced right and very addicting. I think I only ate a piece or two of the catfish and let the hushpuppies be my real dinner.
Try different add ins like bacon, shredded zucchini, honey, etc…Customize away!
Try the recipe, you won’t be sorry. And be sure and let me know!
