Quick Easy Hush Puppies

Hush puppies

These hush puppies come together fast, fry fast, and disappear fast! Customize the recipe by adding different seasonings (I like to add cayenne and garlic), include hot or mild diced peppers, and up your game with chopped crab or shrimp or a handful of shredded cheese. They’re perfect just as they are, too!
