Hush puppies are little balls of seasoned, deep-fried dough (usually made with corn meal), and often served as a side dish or appetizer in the South. The origin of this fried dough is unclear. One tale suggests that Confederate soldiers during the Civil War kept their dogs quiet while they were cooking by feeding them fried dough balls. Thus, "hush, puppy."
SIFT together cornmeal, baking powder, salt and flour in small bowl.
COMBINE onion, egg and creamed corn in medium bowl; add cornmeal mixture and mix well.
HEAT approximately 1 inches of oil in skillet to 350 F. Drop 1 tablespoon portions of batter into oil and fry until golden brown on all sides, turning as needed. Drain on paper towels. Serve with salsa, mustard, or honey.
