Legend of the Hushpuppy

In the old days hunters and trappers would be on the trail for days at a time. Some traveled with 01' hunting dogs or hound dogs. At suppertime the dogs got hungry too! So the hunters would mix a little batter out of corn meal or flour, and cook it in some grease on the campfire. Then they would throw it to the pups telling them to be quiet, shut-up, or "hush." If you fixed the batter up right, it tasted good to humans as well.
