Captain Bill’s Waterfront Restaurant Hush Puppies

Homemade hush puppies from the recipe on the back of the advertising postcard from Captain Bill’s Waterfront Restaurant, U.S. 70, Morehead, North Carolina.

Capt. Bill’s famous hush puppy recipe!

Hubby has a thing for hush puppies. I have, however, never had an authentic hush puppy experience so when I saw this recipe on the back of an old postcard it seemed like the perfect opportunity to give them a shot. Success! Thanks to Hubby’s deep frying skills and a little malt vinegar (had to be authentic, you know) they were terrific! I hope to come across more lost recipes like this on some of these old postcards. What a  yummy surprise!

Captain Bill’s hush puppies made at home!

I wish I could have found more history about the restaurant, but the only thing I could find was that it closed in 2013 or 2014. I never had the opportunity to visit Captain Bill, did you?
