       Title: Justin Wilson’s Hush Puppies
  Categories: Cajun, Breads
       Yield: 48 servings
  
       2 c  Cornmeal                  1 c  Green onion, finely chopped
       1 x  Ground cayenne pepper   1/2 ts Soda
       1 c  Plain flour               2 tb Bacon drippings, hot
       2 ea Eggs, beaten            1/2 c  Parsley, finely chopped
       1 ts Baking powder           1/2 ts Garlic powder (to taste)
       1 c  Buttermilk                1 x  Deep fat for frying
       1 ts Salt                           
  
   Combine all dry ingredients.  Add eggs, buttermilk, onions, 
   and oil or bacon drippings.  Mix well.  Drop in deep hot fat 
   by spoonfuls and brown on all sides. Now, I said above that 
   this makes 48, I've never counted, so I don't know for sure.  
   But it sure does make a bunch.  The main reason why I said 48 
   is because the program, MenuMaster, won't let you past that field
   unless you tell it something. Justin Wilson says, “Hush puppy is
   an old Southern term that originated after the Civil War. People 
   didn't have enough for themselves to eat let alone feed their dogs, 
   so when the old hounds started barking from hunger, they would throw 
   pieces of fried corn bread to them, yelling, 'Shut up, dog!  
   Hush puppy!”
