From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Legend has it that these were made with the leftover batter from the fried fish, and then thrown to the howling dogs with the command, "hush, puppy!" (See Civil War stories, plantation stories, hunting stories, etc.)
1 1/2 cups corn meal, white or yellow
Heat enough oil in a deep heavy bottomed pan or skillet to at least 1 inch depth to about 360 degrees. (Use the same oil and pan that you used to fry the fish.)
