Hush Puppies

Hush puppes are never made exactly to recipe.  Here is a basic recipe.  It assumes, of course that you just fried a mess of fish and still have your grease hot.

1 3/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup flour, all-purpose
1 tsp. salt
1 egg
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup milk
1/2 cup diced onion (or green onion if in season)

Stir all together.  Drop by spoonful or scoop into hot oil and cook until well browned.  Test one first and if it is well browned but still doughy inside, turn down heat a bit.  Usually takes 2 or 3 minutes.
