Hush Puppies
2 c yellow corn meal
1 c plain flour
2 eggs
1 c buttermilk
3/4 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp baking powder
2/3 tsp baking soda
1/8 c bacon grease

Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add your eggs, bacon grease, and buttermilk. Stir it all up until the flavors are thoroughly blended. Turn your fryer on medium-high heat. When it's hot you can drop your hush puppies in using a table spoon. Allow them to brown on all sides. They should begin floating when done, but if
they don't, don't overcook them. You can also store this mixture in the refrigerator for a day or so if you are only cooking for a smaller group. Before cooking let it reach near room temperature.
