Hush Puppies for a Crowd

Yield 125-150 hush puppies


  • 5 lbs. self-rising corn meal
  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/2 quarts (or more) water and buttermilk (or 2 1/2 quarts of either)
  • 1/2 cup shortening, melted
  • 3 tablespoons onion, minced
  • 4 eggs


  1. Stir liquid into dry ingredients, making a thick batter. (Addition of shortening improves texture. Onion adds flavor. Eggs improve texture and flavor. All three are technically optional but they all improve the batter.)
  2. Drop from spoon into fat which has been heated to 350°F -375°F. Fry to a golden brown.
  3. Serve fresh.
