DEEP FRYING DIRECTIONS
1. MIX 1 cup Hush Puppy Mix and 1/2 cup ice-cold water in medium bowl until well blended.
2. REFRIGERATE 10 minutes. Batter will be thick.
3. POUR vegetable oil into large skillet or deep fryer, filling no more than 1/3 full. Heat oil to 350°F on medium heat.
4. DROP batter by teaspoonfuls into hot oil. Cook until hush puppies are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
Makes about 15 hush puppies.
TIP: Try adding chopped jalapeño pepper, crisp-cooked bacon, chopped green onion or grated cheese to the batter.
