    Classic Maryland Oyster Sandwich


    2 cups oysters (approx 40 drained an shucked)
    1.5 c cornmeal
    1/4 tsp pepper
    6 cups vegetable oil
    1 lg egg
    1/4 c half and Half or whole milk
    2 tsp of salt or Old Bay seasoning
    1/4 c tartar or cocktail sauce
    4 pieces of french bread
    4 tomato slices
    4 lettuce leaves

    Frying Oysters:

    Heat oil to 375°F in a fryer or deep frying pan for about 10-12 min. Whisk egg, half and half or milk, and 1 tsp salt together in a small bowl. In a plastic or paper bag, combine cornmeal, remaining salt and pepper and shake well. In batches, dip oysters in egg mixture, then drip, and add to the cornmeal mix and shake.

    Delicately place each coated oyster in oil while removing excess breading and fry. Flip oysters in oil until they become golden brown (usually 1-2 mins.) Using a slotted spoon, remove from fryer and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Repeat process for the next batch until done.
    Spread tartar or cocktail sauce on the bread and add 1 slice of tomato and lettuce leaf. Place oysters on the bread and ENJOY!
