Batter Fried Oysters

  • 1/2 pint oysters
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 pint milk
  • Flour
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • A little nutmeg (optional)
  • Lard or cooking oil
Scald the oysters in their own liquor. Remove the shells and let them drain through and through.

Break the eggs in a bowl and mix the flour in, sufficient amount to make a batter. Gradually add the milk with the nutmeg and seasoning. Put the oysters in the batter.

Heat the oil in the frying pan. Put the oysters in one at a time. Take them out and lay on paper towels to soak up the fat.

*Fried oysters are frequently used for garnishing boiled fish. If this is the case, a few bread crumbs should be added to the flour.
