Buttermilk Hush Puppies

Southern Living Magazine has been a favorite of mine for many years.  It has always been a great source for wonderful recipes and decorating ideas.  This recipe for Buttermilk Hush Puppies came from Southern Living.  When we began having fish fries and needed a good hush puppy recipe, I told Phillip that I had seen a recipe in Southern Living that I wanted to try.  We both really liked the recipe and it became the one that we always use.  It's light on the inside and crunchy on the outside.  As I have said before about other recipes, the buttermilk really gives it a good flavor.  Hush Puppies are not just for fish fries.  They are a good side dish for other meals, too.  I could make a meal off of hush puppies with a glass of sweet tea!  Spoken like a true southern girl!
