This recipe is meant to compliment our Deep Fried Turkey but can be enjoyed separately.

Hey y’all, thought you might like a little holiday hint to compliment your turkey recipe. While your bird is frying, whip up a batch of hush-puppie batter (I prefer to mix hot peppers into mine, cajun style). Jiffy makes a good mix if yer lazy. If ya want to give it a shot yourself and ya ain’t gotta G-ma to ask, here’s how.


  • 1 cup yellow stone-ground corn meal
  • 1 tsp. double-acting baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2-3 tsps. of minced onions or hot peppers
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk

For a dozen or so hush puppies, Beat 1 egg into 1/2 cup milk. Combine the yellow stone-ground corn meal, baking powder, salt, and minced onions or hot peppers and mix into a batter. Scoop the batter into the desired size for your hush puppies (2″ diameter) and drop into the turkey fryer and cook until golden brown or a little darker.

TIP! make sure there is enough room in your fryer to drop four or five mixes without touching the sides or the bird.

Pardon us please, while we pay for beer...

I don’t think I’d do these ANY days before you want to eat them. They are delicious hot and fresh.


How many days before Thanksgiving could this be fried and still be fresh?

I use green onions(cut up all of onion including top) and beer instead of milk. Works great with fish.

Any thoughts? Please comment!x
