Red Lobster Hush Puppies Recipe (The Original)

I remember many years ago, Red Lobster hush puppies were more like a deep fried bread than a cornmeal ball. They were about two inches long and shaped more like a tube. There was more flour and less cornmeal so the insides were tender and breadlike instead of mealy. I wrote to the Red Lobster corporate headquarters and they said even though they no longer make those in the restaurants, the recipe is still proprietary and not open to the public.

Does anyone have a recipe like this? The one on the internet posted with the catfish is NOT the one I am looking for.

Your help is most appreciated.
