Buttermilk Hushpuppies

Ingredients

  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying, or as needed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 4 green onions, minced

Directions

  • Heat 1 quart vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 365 degrees F.
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  • Whisk buttermilk, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, and eggs in a bowl.
  • Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Fold buttermilk mixture, onion, and green onions into cornmeal mixture until just mixed.
  • Drop 6 to 8 tablespoon-sized balls of batter into the hot oil; fry until each hush puppy is golden brown, turning the hush puppies to cook evenly, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove hush puppies with a slotted spoon and place on brown paper bags to drain. Repeat with any remaining batter.
  • Transfer hush puppies to a baking sheet and keep warm in the preheated oven until ready to serve.
