It's almost impossible to enjoy a Carolina style barbecue plate without hush puppies. These savory yet slightly sweet fried dough bites are reminiscent of a cornbread donut hole. They're guaranteed to get gobbled up fast, especially when paired with honey butter, so you might want to make a double batch!

Carolina Hush Puppies Recipe from Savory Spice

Ingredients

Notes

*We had success making a gluten-free version of this recipe using Pillsbury's Multi-Purpose Gluten Free Flour Blend.

Directions

For hush puppies: Whisk dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine wet ingredients in a small bowl. Stir wet ingredients into dry until just combined and let batter sit for 10 min. Meanwhile, heat 2 inches of oil in a heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat until oil reaches 350 degrees. In batches of about 6 to 8 at a time, drop 1 heaping Tbsp. sized scoops of batter into the oil and fry until golden brown, about 1 to 2 min. per side. Transfer hush puppies to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and sprinkle with additional salt to taste.

For honey butter: Blend butter and honey powder until thoroughly combined. Serve alongside warm hush puppies.

Serving Suggestions

Hush puppies taste best right after they are fried. Serve with your favorite style of barbecue. Perfect with chopped or pulled pork.

Yields

About 30 hush puppies

“Capitol Hill is AMAZING! Getting more as I used the last in smashed red potatoes last night. The other half took to work today and shared with a coworker -- ordering a bottle for her. You should consider a warning label: HIGHLY ADDICTIVE! YUUUUUUUUM!”
