Okra Hush Puppies fry up crispy with little pieces of okra throughout. If you’re a lover of fried okra, you are going to love the way okra tastes in hush puppies! These hush puppies have such a unique and wonderful flavor.
Hush puppies are one of my favorite things to eat. They’re the best thing about going to a fish camp. I have a hard time not filling up on them before my meal comes.
As much as I love plain hush puppies dipped in honey butter, these Okra Hush Puppies take hush puppies to a new level. They’re like hush puppies with little bits of fried okra in them. So good!
This Okra Hush Puppy recipe is a recipe I have adapted slightly from Biscuit Head: New Southern Biscuits, Breakfast, and Brunch. Of my newer cookbooks, it is one of my favs!
Okra Hush Puppies were made for summer time!
