Hush Puppy

This is a deep fried fritter, consisting of cornmeal, flour, egg and other seasonings that is traditionally served with fried catfish.  There are many stories depicting the origins.  The origin tale most often told is that the name came from the practice of tossing fried bits of cornmeal to hush yapping dogs around the campfire.
