Okra Hush Puppies

Okra Hush Puppies

Okra Hush Puppies fry up crispy with little pieces of okra throughout. If you’re a lover of fried okra, you are going to love the way okra tastes in hush puppies! These hush puppies have such a unique and wonderful  flavor.



Hush puppies are one of my favorite things to eat. They’re the best thing about going to a fish camp. I have a hard time not filling up on them before my meal comes.

As much as I love plain hush puppies dipped in honey butter, these Okra Hush Puppies take hush puppies to a new level. They’re like hush puppies with little bits of fried okra in them. So good!


Hush puppies are so easy and inexpensive to make. Here is my favorite recipe for plain hush puppies and I also love these Squash Puppies made with summer squash.

This Okra Hush Puppy recipe is a recipe I have adapted slightly from Biscuit Head: New Southern Biscuits, Breakfast, and Brunch. Of my newer cookbooks, it is one of my favs!

Okra Hush Puppies were made for summer time!
