Cracklin Hush Puppies by Whitney Otawaka

½ finely minced onion

2 cups cornmeal

1 cup AP flour

2 tablespoons sugar

¾ tablespoons baking powder

2 teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

1.5 cups buttermilk

2 eggs

1 cup pork craklins or bacon

Mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients. Combine. Mix in onion and cracklins or bacon. Use 1 tablespoon of batter per hush puppy. Deep fry at 325 degrees in neutral cooking oil such as canola or peanut. Drain briefly on a paper towel. Garnish with honey.
