Hush Puppies

Hush Puppies

According to the legend Hush Puppies were named so because they were used to quiet the hounds. This poem illustrates just how:

Hound puppies howl in Georgia,
Hound puppies howl at home,
I ‘spect dey cries in Paris,
and I hear dey squeaks in Rome.
But de hunters and de hounds, 
dey don’t make a sound,
after you passes dese here pones around.

1 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
3/4 cups buttermilk
3 tablespoons chopped onion
