Fried Oysters
Drain oysters and remove any remaining shell pieces. In small bowl or pie plate combine flour, bread or cracker crumbs, salt and pepper. In a heavy skillet heat ¼ inch oil until hot but not smoking. Add milk to oysters and stir. Individually, coat oysters with flour mixture and drop into hot oil. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Place on absorbent paper to drain.
