Sweet Potato Hushpuppies

Sometimes when I create a recipe, it just must have that little “something” to go alongside to make it complete… and that’s how these Sweet Potato Hushpuppies came to be.  Back in fall of 2017, my Creamy Fall Clam Chowder was created for Carolina Country Magazine.  And we all know a good chowder calls for a good hushpup.  This recipe is a bit different than your traditional one… a really crispy outside but with more of a creamy “inside.” So if you’re expecting the usual grainy cornmeal texture, this may not be the recipe for you… but I do invite you to give it a go.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
