pinch baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 ½ tsp sugar

½ onion minced and cooked till translucent

Combine dry ingredients and make a well.  Add all other ingredients and whisk just till the batter comes together.  In hot oil, about 325*, carefully drop tablespoons of batter into oil.  Cook until deep golden brown.  Serve as is or let cool.  Cut tops off and flatten bottoms so the hushpuppy can stand.  Scoop out through the top leaving a 1/8" wall.  Use centers for a poultry stuffing.
