Hush puppies are small baked or fried balls of cornmeal; they are popular in the south. The story goes that they were often fed to dogs while hunting to keep them quiet, to 'hush the puppies'. Hush Puppies is also a registered brand name of popular footwear, and I'm going to make a wild guess that they got the name because they are a softer shoe with a soft and quiet sole.
Average 3 per person, or 600 hush puppies.
I think you are referring to hush puppies.
According to the Betty Crocker cookbook that was used by my 1958 Home Ec. Class Hunters & fishermen while cooking their food over the campfire, (many foods were cooked breaded & fried) would fry up some breading to toss to the dogs to quiet them. Hence the name... Hush Puppies. :)
