Hush puppies

A type of drop scone, popular in the southern states of the U.S.A; and made from corn (maize) meal batter. Traditionally, they should be fried in a pan when frying fish, and legend has it that the household dogs were tossed bits of fried corn to hush them when they smelt dinner cooking. See 'Hominy grits'; 'Maize'; 'Maize grain'; 'Maize meal'; 'Popcorn'; 'Sweet corn'
