Oyster fritters

A family classic, although this is because my family was centered around the Chesapeake Bay for many generations. Regardless, a great way to eat oysters. These make an amazing BLT--just add the fried oysters to the BLT. Kind of like an oyster po' boy, but with bacon. Mmmmm...bacon.

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 beaten eggs
1 cup milk
fat (bacon fat, lard, frying oil, etc. -- not butter)
1 pint oysters

Drain the oysters and chop. Sift the dry ingredients together, then combine the wet separately. Pour the wet into the dry. Stir, add the oysters, and fry.
