Cheesy Fried Cornmeal Fritters Recipe
Cornmeal fritters are also known as hushpuppies. There are a few stories about where this name came from. One is that people would give dogs fried cornmeal as a treat when they begged. Another, probably truer tale, is that hushpuppies were created by a well-known Black fish cook in the Carolinas about 120 years ago. He would serve these fritters along with fried fish. If you’ve had hushpuppies in the United States, you likely had them with fish. Even some fast-food fish chains serve hushpuppies with their fish. But no matter their origins, they are tasty. This fried cornmeal fritter recipe is a perfect snack and appetizer for the whole family. A tasty appetizer that you can prepare with only a few ingredients.
