Whether sitting down for an evening meal with the family, a camp out with friends or a shore lunch with buddies after a day on the water fishing (I’m going to assume you caught some fish). Traditionally, these bite size seasoned Cheddar Hush Puppies would be served with any fish or seafood, but I think they are a delicious addition to many other dishes.
While these are commonly attributed to being a Southern food I’ve found them in other regions of the country. There also has to be a story behind them with a name like hush puppies, and they all have to do with dogs, imagine that. According to folklore the name was given to them because hunters would use them as treats to quiet their dogs. And now we’re eating them,…hmmmm.
We haven’t made these often enough in my opinion, I love eating these with a little malt vinegar and tartar sauce on the side.
What other Southern style foods do you enjoy?
