Baked Hush Puppies. A number of years ago in an effort to prepare and present a healthier menu to my family I developed these Baked Hush Puppies. Part of a good Southern Menu is Catfish, Cole Slaw, and Hush Puppies. These are not the same as deep fried Hush Puppies, but they are really good. We find them a great little grab and go snack in addition to being a healthier Hush Puppy.
