Reviews for Hush Puppy Mix
"I made these Hush Puppies recently and they were delicious!I used regular cornmeal and it worked out fine."
"HELP!! Interesting, anxious to try. After reading editor's note, does this mean the 41/3 c. corn meal will be self rising, along with the 1 TBSP. salt added. Thanks!!!"
