Fried Oysters Recipe
Best recipe for fried oysters.
Take large oysters from their own liquor into a thickly folded napkin
to dry them; then make hot an ounce each of butter and lard in a
thick-bottomed frying pan. Season the oysters with pepper and salt,
then dip each one into egg and cracker crumbs rolled fine, until
it will take up no more. Place the oysters in the hot grease and fry them
a delicate brown, turning them on both sides by sliding a broad-bladed
knife under them. Serve your oysters crisp and hot.
Some prefer to roll oysters in corn meal and others use flour,
but they are much more crisp with egg and cracker crumbs.
