Pabst Blue Ribbon Meets Hush Puppies

This is what you get when Pabst Blue Ribbon meets Hush Puppies, and it’s amazing.

Really, there is a recipe for Pabst Blue Ribbon Hush Puppies? Heck Yea! A few years ago I had the wonderful opportunity to work with the Pabst Blue Ribbon beer folks on a grilling and tailgating recipe booklet. Sadly… there was no free beer involved! But the effort resulted in some of my favorite cooking with beer recipes! Turns out that beer is an awesome ingredient for all kinds of dishes! One of the recipes was for my PBR Hush Puppies!

Why Hush Puppies?

Why not? I grew up in the south and we love our fishing and our fried fish plates. You can’t have a big ole fish fry without sides. Chances are you’ll probably have a cold beer at said fish fry. Now all you have to do is combine a couple of things such as beer and hush puppies! Oh, you can also use some of the Pabst with your fish batter as well!

Go Seasoning and Ingredient Crazy!

You can follow your normal hushpuppy recipe substituting the liquid with PBR. You should have some awesome results. But why stop there. Consider all of the cool things you can toss into a hush puppy such as bacon bits, cheese, jalapenos, minced onion, or even chopped up seafood or left over shredded barbecue. Add and subtract some of the seasonings in my recipe to your own liking. The secret to any good hush puppy is too have hot oil for frying, not frying too many at one time, and not too make them too big so that they cook evenly.

Ingredients:

  • 3-1/4 up self-rising cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 Pabst Blue Ribbon, room temp
  • 3/4 c. finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • Hot vegetable oil for frying

Directions:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes while oil gets hot.
  3. Drop batter by the spoonful into oil and cook until golden brown. They will expand slightly. Try a few to master the size of the batter ball. Larger sizes will not fully cook in the middle.
  4. Add additional flour if needed.
  5. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

 

These would go great with the Poor Man’s Rib Eye.
