Cajun Red Neck Hush Puppies

Ingredients

2-1/2 cups corn meal, coarse ground yellow preferred

1 tbs salt

1/4 tsp garlic salt or to taste

1/4 tsp onion salt or 1/2 tsp dried minced onion or 2 to 3 green onions, finely chopped

1 tbs left-over stewed (cooked) squash or cream style corn

2 eggs

Hard boiling water


Instructions

Mix dry ingredients together. Break eggs on top of mix and stir well. Add hard boiling water a little at a time while stirring until it forms stiff mush (should be stiff enough to stick to spoon). Drop round ice tsp of batter into hot grease after cooking fish. Use second spoon to push batter off.

Keep cup of water handy to keep spoon damp so batter doesn’t stick. The secret is the water must be hot enough to cook the corn meal. The grease just crusts the outside of ball to golden brown.

You can always go back and add more water (be sure it is boiling if you do) but you don’t want it too liquid. It won’t hold together when it hits the grease.

Here is the secret – – Get yourself a bottle of WOW WEE spicy dipping sauce, It is the best I have ever seen for dipping specialty items like hush puppies and etc. Let me know how you like it.

Slice the yams and dice into ¼ inch cubes, Spread cubes on a cookie sheet and freeze them. In a large mixing bowl, combine pork, venison and remaining ingredients. Add ice water. Using your hands, mix sausage well by turning and pushing the mixture for 10/15 minutes to ensure proper blending.
