Hush Puppies


As served in the Loveless Cafe, hush puppies are a must with any catfish dinner plate! Let’s get Southern, y’all!



  1. In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  2. Stir in onions.
  3. Combine egg yolk and buttermilk; stir into cornmeal mixture until combined.
  4. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites until stiff.
  5. Gently fold into cornmeal mixture.
  6. Fill a large deep skillet with 2 to 3 inches oil. Heat oil until it reaches 375* on a deep-fry thermometer.
  7. Working in batches, drop batter 1 t at a time into the oil and cook, turning once until the hush puppies rise to the surface and are golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  9. Serve immediately.
