Beer-Cheese Hushpuppies

1 cup yellow cornmeal

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

2 oz. pepper jack or Cheddar cheese, shredded

1/3 cup finely chopped onion

1/3 cup finely chopped red pepper

1 egg, lightly beaten

2/3 cup light beer

vegetable oil for frying

1/4 cup chopped parsley

In a medium bowl mix cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and pepper. Add cheese, onion and red sweet pepper; toss to combine. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. In another bowl mix egg and beer; add to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened.

In a 3-quart saucepan heat 2-inches of oil to 375°. Drop 1 rounded Tbsp. of batter into hot oil for each hush puppy. Fry three or four at a time for 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
