Get it? ‘Cause.. you know.. the movie..
Ok, fine. Am I the only one who has seen the movie Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte? Because no one seems to get the reference and it makes me sad.
Oh well. I still think a good, Halloween name for hush puppies is Hush.. Hush, Sweet Puppies. 😀
I originally planned on having them at mine, but I’ve tweaked my menu a bit and won’t be including them. I used the recipe out of Hot Damn and Hell Yeah (which is well worth the $6 price tag, btw) to make these little guys. I made a dipping sauce out of ketchup, Vegenaise, and cajun seasoning. Cocktail sauce is also a good sauce for hush puppies.
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 egg substitutes
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup soymilk mixed with 2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup parsely, finely chopped
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp chili powder
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and blend well. Add the remaining ingredients one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Form the mixture into spoon-sized balls and deep fry in oil until golden brown.
My alterations: I added chopped green onion, and shallow-fried them in a skillet.
