Addy’s Hush Puppies

Recipe Inspired by: Addy’s Cookbook – The American Girls Collection

“Hush, Puppy!”

Where did the hush puppy get its name?

One story is that men often took their dogs along when they went fishing. As the men fried the fish the caught, the dogs got hungry and started barking. To quiet them, the men fried cornmeal batter without any fish in it and fed it to the dogs, saying, “Hush, puppy!”
Quote from Addy’s Cookbook


1 small onion – chopped fine
1½ cups cornmeal
½ cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1 egg
3//4 cup milk
Oil for frying


1. Place the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl and stir.
2. Crack the egg into a medium mixing bowl and beat it with a fork until it is well mixed.
3. Add the onion pieces and milk to the egg and mix well.
4. Stir the egg, milk, and onion pieces into the cornmeal and flour mixture.
5. Place about 2-3 inches of oil in a deep-fat fryer or skillet over medium-high heat.
6. When the oil is hot, carefully drop the batter into the pan. Use one heaping teaspoon of batter for each hush puppy. You may fry 5-6 hush puppies at once.
7. The hush puppies will sink into the hot oil. Then they will rise to the top. After 1-2 minutes, the hush puppies will be golden brown.
8. Use a slotted spoon to remove the hush puppies. Let them drain on paper towels.
