The Mississippi Queen in Cornbread, Hushpuppies, Mississippi Queen Foods

Hushpuppies are fried, round, pieces of cornbread, typically served along side fried catfish, but are great with many other Southern dishes.  

Rumor has it, the name 'huspuppies', came about, when hunters were sitting around a camp fire one night, tossing pieces of cornbread, to their hounds, to keep them from barking.

Whether there is any truth in the story, or not, the name 'hushpuppies' is here to stay!
