1. Jalapeno Hush Puppies

Jalapeno Hushpuppies are a requirement with all of our fried fish or shrimp.  It’s a must! They are spicy, crispy, golden brown little nuggets of fried cornbread heaven.  No fish fry is complete without them.

2. Southern Slow Cooker Green beans

Here’s an easy way to make that Southern classic – in the slow cooker.  You just dump it all in the slow cooker and turn it on.  Ok, you do need to stir them a couple times, but the effort is minimal.  And since I use the packaged real crumbled bacon pieces, you get all that great smoky bacon flavor without having to cook bacon – or even better – without having to clean the kitchen after cooking bacon.

7. Fried Catfish Filets

Southerners know that fried catfish is the other white meat!

Southerners love a good “mess” of fish and catfish is a favorite in the South.  Add some hush puppies and coleslaw and you got a mouth-watering meal. I usually fry my catfish in cornmeal but flour is good, too. We like it both ways!

9. Southern Style Mac & Cheese

Nanny’s Macaroni & Cheese was, hands-down, my absolute favorite of all the things she cooked. Though her 12-layer banana cake, chicken n’ dumplings and greasy rice all hold special places in my heart, there was nothing – and I mean NOTHING – that was more delicious or more requested than her macaroni and cheese.

10. Cornbread Casserole

It’s traditional to eat black eyed peas on New Year’s Day in the South. That said, there are no rules saying it couldn’t be in the form of a delectable Hoppin’ John Casserole with Cornbread Crust! This skillet casserole takes black eyed peas to another level with fire roasted tomatoes and chilis, onion, bell pepper, ham and bacon along with a kicked-up combination of seasonings. Smothered with a cornbread topping it’s then baked until the cornbread is golden. Without a  doubt, it’s a tasty way to start the new year.
