- 1 1/2 cups medium, stone ground cornmeal
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1/2 small yellow onion
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 4 cups vegetable oil, for frying
- 4 tbsp salted butter
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 bag Savage Jerky Co.® Maple Buffalo Bacon Jerky
Whip together butter, maple syrup and brown sugar, set aside.
Grate half yellow onion, combine with buttermilk and large egg, whisk to combine, and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, kosher salt, baking soda and sugar. Finely chop Maple Buffalo Bacon Jerky and combine previously mixed wet & dry ingredients and whisk well. Set aside while oil comes to temp, approximately 15 minutes.
Add vegetable oil to a Dutch oven to a depth of 1 to 1 1/2 inches, heat over medium-high heat to 365º. Drop batter in oil using a small ice cream scoop or spoon, 3-5 at a time and fry until golden brown on all sides, approximately 4-5 minutes and immediately drain to a plate lined with paper towels.
Serve hush puppies alongside maple butter for dipping, piping hot.
