Hush Puppies

Years ago, one of my favourite t.v. cooks was Justin Wilson. He was an older gent from the bayou of Louisianna who not only was a great cook but had an amazing penchant for telling funny stories. This recipe is for one of his easiest treats to make.


  • 2 Cups cornmeal

  • 1 Tsp. ground cayenne pepper

  • 1 Cup flour

  • 2 Eggs (beaten)

  • 1 Tsp. baking powder

  • 1 Cup buttermilk

  • 1 Tsp. salt

  • 1 Cup finely chopped green onion

  • 1/2 Tsp. baking soda

  • 2 Tbs. hot bacon drippings

  • 1/2 Cup parsley (finely chopped)

  • 1/2 Tsp. garlic powder

  • Oil for deep frying

Combine all dry ingredients. Add eggs, buttermilk, onions, and bacon drippings. Mix well.

Drop in hot oil by spoonfuls and brown on all sides.

Makes about 48.
