    Recipe Introduction

    This is a favorite of the Catfish Institute in Belzoni, Mississippi. Substituting beer for milk makes these lighter and tangier.

    1 1/2 dozen

    1 cup self-rising cornmeal mix
    1/2 cup self-rising flour
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 large egg
    1/2 cup milk or beer
    1/2 cup diced onion
    1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
    1 jalapeņo pepper, chopped
    Vegetable oil
    Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl, and make a well in center of mixture.

    Combine egg and next 4 ingredients, stirring well; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.

    Pour oil to a depth of 3 inches into a Dutch oven or large saucepan; heat to 375°.

    Drop batter by rounded tablespoonfuls into hot oil, and fry in batches 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; serve immediately.
