2 cups Martha White corn bread mix

1 cup Quaker yellow corn meal

1/2 cup onion finely chopped

1 tbls minced garlic

1 tsp cajun spice

milk or water or buttermilk  to make a thick batter.  the batter should be thick enough to make into balls

peanut or canola oil heated to 400 degrees F.

form balls with your hands and drop into oil, fry until golden brown.

This recipe will feed 8 people so if you need less just cut this in half.

I serve them with fish and Carolina BBQ

Laura! This sounds awesome! If folks wanted to skip the cornbread mix, do you have suggestions for what to include? Maybe some combo of flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt?

Jennifer, yes.. white cornmeal (it's usually a finer grind than the yellow) 1 1/2 cups.. 1/2 cup AP flour, baking soda and a little salt.. I never use sugar in my corn bread.. I can't stand that sweet stuff.. I make it the old fashioned way that my grandma taught me.

Excellent. Thanks, Laura!

Jennifer, if you want to skip the corn bread mix..  1 1/2 cups of white corn mill.   1/2 cup AP flour  1 tsp of baking powder and one tsp of baking soda.   I like to make my own corn bread mix and then keep it stored in an air tight container in the pantry.

I *love* the idea of having cornbread mix ready to go. Thank you!
