Reviews forBest Hush Puppies
"Great taste, just needed to be a little firmer. I loved the corn in it....I will make it again."
"This was a good recipe and our first time trying making hush puppies. I like them a bit more dense, but this could be resolved with a true fryer. We also added chives to the recipe which was a great addition."
