Second Step: Forming Hush Puppies

Once the dough is still very warm, but not hot enough to burn your hand, take a small portion out of the pan and shape it into a round flat pancake. The picture to the far left should give you an idea of its proportion.

I do this step by rolling the dough into balls and then with a piece of wax paper on top and underneath the dough ball smash it with a spatula.

Third Step: Frying Hush Puppies

Take your frying pan and fill it 1/4 of an inch up with corn oil. Turn your burner on to medium high. If you have an electric stove top like mine you will need to wait about three minutes for it to heat up. Then place about eight hush puppies into the hot oil. Once their bottom sides look like the upper close  up left picture flip them over and let the other side fry. Once they are done take them out, blot the oil off of them using paper towels and then salt them.

(If you have never fried any thing before there are some safety rules to hot oil. One: Never leave it unattended. If you do, it could start your house on fire. Two: If you have children make sure it is out of their reach and the handle of the skillet is not hanging off where they could reach it. Three: Use the proper utensils to fry, this never includes your hands. I know My hand is in the picture, but I can tell you from experience hot oil hurts!) I am not trying to scare you, just trying to make this an enjoyable experience.
