Beer-Cheese Hushpuppies
Ingredients
  • 1  cup  yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1  teaspoon  sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 2  ounces  pepper jack cheese or cheddar cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)
  • 1/3  cup  finely chopped onion
  • 1/3  cup  finely chopped red sweet pepper
  • 1  egg, lightly beaten
  • 2/3  cup  light lager
  •  Vegetable oil or shortening for deep-fat frying
  •  Snipped fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley (optional)
  •  Green or red jalapeno jelly
Directions

1. In a medium bowl mix cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add cheese, onion and red sweet pepper; toss to combine. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. In another bowl mix egg and beer; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened.

2. In a 3-quart saucepan heat 2-inches of oil to 375 degrees F. For each hush puppy, drop 1 rounded tablespoon of batter into hot oil. Fry three or four at a time for 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.

3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat pepper jelly just until melted. Serve hush puppies warm with pepper jelly. Makes 20 to 24 hush puppies.
