Directions

  1. Mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, Parmesan cheese, baking powder, salt, black pepper, eggs, bell peppers, onions, cream-style corn, whole kernel corn, and pimento peppers in a large bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Drop 6 to 8 tablespoon-sized balls of batter into the hot oil; fry until each hush puppy is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove hush puppies with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with any remaining batter.

I made these today. Followed the recipe as written. They were a big hit at our family fish fry. Delicious, I wouldn't change a thing.

These were fantastic. I found they made more servings than expected when I changed the number of servings and made a few adjustments based on what I had available. Also, you need to make certain they cook all the way through. If they brown lightly they're not quite done in the center. Be sure you brown them well.
