1 cup self-rising flour
1 1/2 cup cornmeal
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoon bacon grease
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 medium onion -- chopped

Sift together flour, cornmeal, salt, and soda. Add egg and bacon grease then add buttermilk until it's the right consistency to hold its shape when rolled into a ball. Mix in onion, then roll into balls about 2 inches across and drop in deep hot fat. Fry until they're brown and crispy. Let them drain a bit on some paper and serve hot

If you like them crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, add a small amount of instant potato flakes.

Try frying those onions in a little butter and black pepper before going into the mixture. Replace the black pepper with cayenne pepper if you like the kick.

Hello Toolman, aw I seen them wimmin wanting a hush puppy recipe so I figgered what the heck.

I like them hush puppies with some redbeans cooked real slow with some smoked beef sausage and pepper in um w/just a pinch of garlic, cooked down til it's real thick pot likker.

I think Rajah got me hung up on the garlic when he was here cookin goat curry.
