Long John Silver’s Hush Puppies Recipe

I was craving some Long John Silver’s Hush Puppies and took the web to find a recipe to try. This recipe was really easy to make and I actually had all of the ingredients on hand so that made it even better. Everyone did like though, I sort of feel like it could have used a little more flavor. If I try the recipe again I will have to figure out what it was missing first to give them that extra bit of flavor. I anyone has any suggestions for more flavor I am open to them.

  1. 1/4 cup milk
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1/2 cup cornmeal
  4. 1/4 cup flour
  5. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 2 teaspoon garlic salt (was originally 1, but I changed it to 2 for more flavor.)
  7. 2 teaspoon onion powder (was originally 1, but I changed it to 2 for more flavor.)


  1. Combine dry ingredients.
  2. Add egg and milk.
  3. Stir well.
  4. Should be the consistency of bread batter.
  5. If too thin add more corn meal or flour.
  6. Drop by teaspoonful into hot grease. I actually used oil instead of grease.
  7. Cook until brown.

Don’t they just look delicious though? I served them with baked beans and potato fish sticks. Wasn’t the most nutritious dinner but it was yummy and I promise we will eat better tomorrow.

I found this recipe on food.com and made a few changes to it.

  1. These came out great, vegetarian changes: flax seed with water =egg substitute, buttermilk-milk with vinegar, pinch of sugar, 1tsp of garlic salt and grated onion… 🙂 just tweaked it a little bit, but was deliciouso…

  2. Wish I would have found this earlier! We had potato crunch coated fish filets, baked beans and cole slaw. I made some hush puppies but the flavor was BLAH. Will definitely try your recipe next time. THANKS!

  3. I use lots of diced onions instead of onion salt…..buttermilk instead of regular milk….and I also do flour/cornmeal ratio by 3 to 1…..3 parts cornmeal to one part flour. You can also sprinkle in some seasoned salt for a little extra flavor.

    If your appliance is a led television, or your video is a home theater or your audio system belong to the high-end class, how much do you need to have it replaced.

  5. Substitute buttermilk and 1/2 a small onion, grated. You should get a lot more flavor from that. I’ve also seen recipes for Hush Puppies that include cayenne pepper, black pepper, paprika and even one that adds a little bacon grease to the recipe, about 1 tsp for the amount of cornmeal/flour you have listed.
