If you don't know what they are already, Hush puppies are little cornmeal bites, that often include little bits of meat, or seafood, sometime vegetables in them. They were also made during the American Civil war, since they were a more affordable form of sustenance that were easy to carry around in their pockets. Also, the soldiers used to throw the fried dough bites to the guard dogs of the opposition so they would stop barking, hence, the name 'Hush Puppies' to make the puppies hush up! So cool isn't it?

Sometimes crab cakes can fall apart so badly when you are trying to make them, but with the casing of the dough around them, it would really help to keep them together in this case.
