Southern Yumminess


Hello Dear Ones! I thought I would share with you today a wonderful little Southern Fried treat. Now I'm originally from Alabama and honey let me tell you ~ if the morsel you poked into your tiny mouth couldn't be breaded and fried, you didn't eat it! Yep, that's right! ;) And to think my grandmother used LARD!!!

 Now just feast your most gorgeous peepers on these golden fried goodnesses! Yummy! Here you have some  fried up cornbread fingers. These little puppies are so good!

 They fry up a golden brown and are crispy on the outside and delectable on the inside.

 Just poke a few on my plate and that's all I need to eat! But a little side of beans or anything else is good with them.

Well, for now I'll just eat my little cornbread fingers. I can just feel that ole Crisco running through my arteries! Um ummm! :)

Cornbread Fingers
(I usually cut the recipe in half just for Mr. Precious and me)

2 cups cornmeal
1 tsp. baking powder
3 Tbs. sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add slowly to 3 1/2 cups boiling water, stirring briskly. As soon as mixture is smooth, remove from heat. Stir in butter, cool. Form into little finger shaped rolls. Fry in about 2" hot oil, 375' until golden grown. Drain on absorent paper.
Makes bout 3 dozen.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Beans and Cornbread

Beans and Cornbread,
Beans and Cornbread had a fight.
Beans knocked Cornbread out of sight.
Cornbread said, "Now that's alright, 
Meet me on the corner tomorrow Night."
"I'll be ready, I'll be ready tomorrow night,"
That's what Beans said to Cornbread . 
"I'll be ready tomorrow night.
~ sung by Louis Jordan

  1. Shelia, these must be so good. I love corn anything. And fried, well, just say I don't run from an adversary so easily! xo

  2. These look delicious - I am a die hard Southern girl and love my fried foods - and throw in a bowl of beans and I am in heaven - or hog heaven as my Daddy would say. I haven't had these before but I am going to try them tonight.

  7. OMGosh! I love these. There's a restaurant called Catfish Parlour that my parents used to take me to when I was little. I don't like fish...I was there for these hush puppies. So glad I found you out here in blogland...I'm making these this weekend with a big pot of something good. New follower. :)
    Nice to meet you, Sheila!

  11. Cornbread is one of my favorites and I am sure these are divine. I have to make some ham and beans and whip up some of these. Thanks for sharing. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  12. I can eat them and them only. I like them made with beer in the batter...I do not drink beer...yuck. But the yeast helps them be fluffy. I could eat an entire basket and never fit in my jeans again. I do cook most foods in a healthy way but make one nod to decadence. hugs, olive

  19. Hi Shelia! I didn't know that you are originally from Alabama. I fell in love with that place because of the movie Sweet Home Alabama. And those snacks looks so sumptuous, I would love to pick one
