Vicki's Hush Puppies
This is my "go to" recipe for hushpuppies. I rated it shortly after I started using it but want to throw in that I started using two green onions chopped up and it adds just that little extra. You can cut down on some of the other onion if you want. The green color also adds to the presentation. Little bits of green onion. Yummy. If I could give this a 10, I would. Oh, and also, Not to sweet at all!

Dried Beef Cheese Ball
RINSE THE BEEF! If you use the real DRIED BEEF, rather than the cheaper smoked beef, it is very salty. I ruined a double batch by not rinsing. It was just to terribly salty. Headed back to store for more beef and rinsed it. Ahhh, success. I don't use MSG. I did pick up some horseradish the 2nd trip to the grocery store and added a bit. Emmm, good. The green onions are a must. They add nice color and a bit of sweetness. I use all of the onion, white and green. This is so addictive. I've had before but never made. At work there was a carry-in for Easter and I could have sat down with a spoon and consumed the whole thing. I asked for the basic receipe, stopped at the store and then checked out This is a winner!

Sausage Gravy I
Delish! I've made "my own" sausage gravy for years by the old throw some flour in with the sausage and then add milk and this is basically what this is. I had never added bacon drippings though. I tripled the recipe and got a little heavy handed with the bacon drippings so though a good gravy, the bacon flavor was more prominent than I'd have liked. Not bad flavor, but not as sausagey. I use Tennesee Pride sausage and it's rather mild so used a good half a palmful of sage and as other readers commented, the sage really added some good flavor. I had some evaporated milk that needed to be used to I threw that in along with my skim milk and it bumped up the creamyness and flavor. All in all, this is a keeper. Hubby enjoyed it for brunch and just came back (it's 7:30 PM) and just grabbed a bowl of it. The rest will go in the freezer for an quick meal another day.
