My grandmother used to take out her partial and get a mouthful of batter. Perfect puppies everytime

Cornmeal mixture way too runny to have any type of consistency in deep fryer. I'm a NC native and this is worst recipe I've come across.

the onion ruins it, in calabash nc there has never been any onion and they are the best hush puppies in the world, people eat them by the basket fulls!!!

To make the long, skinny shape, you can pipe the batter into the oil (carefully!!) using a pastry bag or a cookie press.

To make long skinny hush puppies, put the batter in a bag, snip the corner, and and pipe it (like frosting) into the hot oil - Be Careful!!!
