1 teaspoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
½ cup Milk

*Option 1 or 2 egg(s) *Option subst buttermilk for milk *Option chopped shallots *Option subst beer for milk Add ingredients to make a batter. Heat deep frying oil to 400 degrees. Dip or roll batter into quail-egg sized balls and drop into hot oil. Cooking time is short, usually just 4 or 5 minutes. Too cool oil will cause slow cooking and greasy, soggy hushpuppies. Too hot oil will result in crisp brown coat with soft uncooked center. Suggestions: Some people add crumbled-up crisp bacon bits. Recipe date: 11/29/87
