Whoever heard of fried oysters on a burger? Well, my brother Mike asked for it at a restaurant, and it worked, so I recreated it. Happy Family Ranch provided the beef, and Crosby’s Crabs had the fresh oysters . Topped with some greens, pepper jack cheese and some remoulade on a Kaiser roll. I hope you like it.
4 1/4 pound beef patties (I got mine at Happy Family Ranch)
8 -10 large oysters (I got mine at Crosby’s Crabs)
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup corn meal
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
4 Kaiser rolls, split
8 teaspoons remoulade sauce
4 slices pepper jack cheese
Salt and pepper
4 ounces fresh arugula (due to supply chain issues I had to use romaine lettuce)
Butter and oil to cook
Preheat oven to 200 (yes 200).
Mix corn meal, flour and Old Bay.
Heat skillet to medium; add butter and oil.
Dredge oysters to coat completely.
Add to pan and brown to crisp on both sides and put on a baking sheet and put in oven. Now the oven makes sense.
Season both sides of beef.
In a large second skillet on medium heat, add beef patties. Cook for 4 minutes on each side.
Add cheese to patties. Cover for 2 minutes to melt the cheese
