Basically little deep fried bits of corn meal bread that you eat with, oh, anything else fried
They usually have bits of onion, bell pepper, etc mixed in with the batter, which is thick and spooned into the hot oil.
Oooh! Check it out! Wikipedia actually has an entry for hush puppies
and even a pic to boot!
Frying stuff probably doesn't come up too much around here... I've got more fryers than smokers and grills combined though
