Crunchy, slightly spicy, and packed with flavor…

It’s hard to eat only one hushpuppy when they’re made with a plain dough, but when adding in jalapeño peppers and a little Old Bay seasoning, it’s like holding back the biggest food craving ever. Expect these to be gone soon after you place them out. They’ll quickly become a family favorite, perfect as an appetizer or side.
