Tasting Table recipe developer Miriam Hahn cracked the code on how to get the best of both worlds in terms of two-toned textures with her Crispy Fluffy Hush Puppies. “The special method is making your own buttermilk by adding vinegar to regular or dairy free milk. I always hate buying a carton of buttermilk when you just need a small amount for a recipe so this vinegar trick is super helpful. It works with regular milk or any type of non-dairy milk,” states Hahn.
Check out this video to see step by step how to make these genius hush puppies at home. While this recipe is delicious as a side, it can also be prepped up quick and served with a dip for an easy appetizer for occasions like game-day, children’s birthday parties, or play-dates. Furthermore, you can lighten it up by popping them in the air fryer versus frying on the stovetop.
Hahn’s go-to dips to pair with these crispy buds include ranch, blue cheese, garlic aioli and Thousand Island.
