Addy's Hush Puppies
Recipe Inspired by: Addy’s Cookbook – The American Girls Collection
Where did the hush puppy get its name?
One story is that men often took their dogs along when they went fishing. As the men fried the fish the caught, the dogs got hungry and started barking. To quiet them, the men fried cornmeal batter without any fish in it and fed it to the dogs, saying, “Hush, puppy!”
