Hush Puppies

Ever since we've had Hush Puppies down south on vacation, my kids have asked me to give them a try.  This recipe was a keeper.  Good 'ol fried food.  There's nothing like it. You need a deep fryer for this one.

2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large onion, diced
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup self-rising cornmeal
1 quart oil for frying

In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, sugar and onion.
Blend in flour and cornmeal.
Heat oil in deep fryer.
Drop batter by rounded teaspoon (if you make them too large they won't cook through), in hot oil, and fry until golden brown.  This doesn't take very long, so watch them carefully.
Cook in small batches to maintain oil temperature.
Drain briefly on paper towels.
Serve hot.
