Hey Guys and Happy Thursday to you! Do you ever just feel like where has the week gone?
Well that’s kind of been my week in a nutshell.
Going through all of the same routine tasks but never feeling as though I’ve accomplished any one thing.
But I do have have these One Pan Skillet Baked Hush Puppies to share with you so maybe that will make up for it.
Because One pan anything is always good and Hush puppies are meant to be shared.
So when the husband said hush puppies used to be his favorite thing when eating seafood I was on a mission.
Because that’s exactly what I thrive on.. I absolutely love a challenge in the kitchen and it’s even better when some one else requests it.
And even though we don’t eat seafood anymore..doesn’t mean you can’t have Hush puppies. They go great with baked fries, coleslaw, beans and so much more.
Anyway, so I’m thinking..uhhmm, these need to be a lot healthier version than what you could buy.
They need to have all the flavors of a traditional hush puppy, yet in a baked gluten free version.
And of course, I thought “I got this”, not going disappoint the hubby or me for that matter.
Cause I used to love those little fried balls of cornmeal also and remember filling up on those.
But these my friends are even better. They’re bigger, more flavorful and baked not fried.
So mission accomplished and old favorite is now part of our menu again.
Do you guys have something you used to eat years ago but haven’t made in a while?
Whether it be from changing your diet due to making healthier choices or allergy restrictions.
