  • Spread 1/2 the bread crumbs on wax paper or foil.
  • Dip each oyster, first in flour, then in egg, then place in the bread crumbs, taking care to cover evenly. Remove any excess.
  • In a 12 inch saute pan, fry the bacon and crisp.
  • Remove and drain.
  • Add the oysters in a single layer and cook until oysters are golden brown in each side. About 5 minutes.

  • Crumble the bacon and add with seasonings to the eggs.
  • Pour the egg mixture over oysters and cook over low heat until the mixture begins to set around the edges.
  • With a spatula gently lift edges as they set, tilting pan to allow uncooked egg mixture to run under the omelet.
  • Cook until all egg mixture is set but still moist on the surface.
  • Sprinkle paprika over, cut into wedges and serve.
