Hangtown Fry

Want a different way to cook your mountain oysters this branding season? Just substitute the ocean oysters in this recipe with mountain oysters (which is probably what was in the original recipe! This recipe originated in the town of Hangtown, California. In more civilized times, the name of Hangtown was changed to Placerville.
8 oz jar oysters
6 eggs
6 strips of bacon or links of sausage
3 Tbl evaporated milk
¼ tsp salt (optional)
Cook bacon or sausage until done, remove and drain. Brown oysters
in remaining grease over medium heat. While oysters are browning,
combine remaining ingredients and beat until mixture becomes
frothy. When oysters are browned, drain off excess grease, if any.
Add egg mixture and scramble to the consistency of your preference.
Serves 3.
