hushpuppy definition and meaning

What is "hushpuppy"?

A hushpuppy is a popular Southern American food that is made from a mixture of cornmeal, flour, eggs, and spices, which is then deep-fried until crispy and golden brown. The mixture is typically flavored with onion, garlic, and other seasonings, giving it a savory and slightly sweet taste. Hushpuppies are often served as a side dish to complement other Southern dishes, such as fried chicken or catfish, and can also be enjoyed on their own as a snack. The origin of the name "hushpuppy" is unclear, but it is thought to have originated from the idea that the fried balls of dough were used to "hush" or quiet barking dogs. Hushpuppies are a beloved food item in the Southern United States and are often associated with Southern comfort food and hospitality.
