Hush Puppies - Recipe

Last Saturday Spencer and I made hush puppies to go with the fish we were having for dinner.
I hit my cookbooks to find a recipe that I could use and came up with this one.
The hush puppies were good, though I have to admit that I would add a bit more onion to the mix.
I know they are not the healthiest item to eat but they were a nice treat.
I have not made them in years and it was fun to try something a bit different.
