When I was growing up in New England,  I rarely ventured into ‘ethnic’ cuisine.  New England baked beans and pot roast were staples in our house.  Tasty but not exactly exciting.  Occasionally we got wild and crazy and went out for pizza or Chinese Food.  It didn’t happen often and my taste buds languished from lack of flavor.  When I graduated from college I moved down to Texas and was inundated with bold new flavors and ethnic cuisine.  I ate alligator on a stick (not bad!) and went to crawfish boils.  I was in food heaven!  The first time I was invited to a friend’s fish fry I was introduced to a delicious little delicacy called hush puppies.

Hush Puppies Recipe with Corn and jalapenos

The most basic hush puppies recipe calls for a combination of flour and cornmeal mixed into milk and eggs.  Flavorings like whole corn, onions, and diced hot peppers can be thrown in for additional flavor.  The thick batter is spooned into hot oil and deep fried until it is a golden brown.  If you have never tried hush puppies I have to say you are seriously missing out! I recommend you head out and pick up some P.A.N. cornmeal and explore the exciting things you can do with cornmeal!
