Jalapeno Hushpuppies

  • Yield: About 1 1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoons Crystal hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup minced onions
  • 2 fresh jalapenos, minced
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk

Directions

  • Preheat the fryer. In a mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, hot sauce, onions, and jalapenos, together. Stir in the eggs and milk. Mix until fully incorporated. Fry 1 tablespoon of the batter at a time. Fry the hushpuppies for 2 to 3 minutes or until they are golden brown. Stirring constantly will ensure over-all browning.
