EASY HUSH PUPPIES

2 1/4 cups cornmeal
1 tsp salt
2 tsp onion flakes
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
hot fat (in the interest of health, I recommend updating to a healthy oil)

Combine the cornmeal, salt, onion flakes, and baking soda together in a mixing bowl.  Add the buttermilk to the cornmeal mixture and mix well.  Heat canola oil (1-inch deep) until hot.  Drop the batter by spoonfuls into the hot oil an cook until browned.  Cooking should take a couple of minutes.

Yield: Approximately 2 dozen hush puppies.

Excellent served with fish.

Yum! This, a nice piece of grilled fish, salad and you've got a good gluten free supper. Thanks, Linda! My southern grandma used to make us hush puppies and we grandkids couldn't get enough of them! Take care--Linda

Linda,

Thanks for pointing out the gluten free supper idea. I know that is helpful to lots of people.
