Beer Battered Hushpuppies

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups of yellow or white cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of finely minced jalapeño peppers
  • Canola oil to cover
  • 1 cup of AMB beer, we used Hop Rain Drop, but encourage you to try out different styles

 

Instructions

  • In a large cast-iron or dutch oven, heat the canola oil until it reaches 375 degrees.
  • In one bowl combine the cornmeal, baking powder, cayenne, and salt.
  • In another bowl, combine the beer, eggs, green onions, and jalapeño peppers.
  • Next, fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients using as few strokes as possible. The mixture should resemble wet sand. If needed add more beer.
  • Line a plate with paper towels to set hushpuppies on after you pull them from the hot oil.
  • Round your hushpuppy mixture using a small cookie scoop, a teaspoon, or by hand before dropping the mixture into the hot oil.
  • Fry in batches of 5 to 6 for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
