Ole' Buddy's Oyster Burger

For those of you not raised on the Gulf Coast or near any coast at all, oysters might have a...slimy connotation. I, on the other hand, couls slurp those suckers down all day. Below is a winning recipe from a recent contest by the Daily Press for the best burgers. Enjoy!


Ole' Buddy's Burger
The recipe was submitted by Van Kennedy of Hampton.

1 side of a hamburger bun
1/4 pound ground beef
1 medium oyster
Old Bay seasoning
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
Lemon juice, to taste

Smear the bun with margarine and grill until toasted. You may also sprinkle the roll with Old Bay seasoning. Shape the ground beef into a patty and grill with olive oil. Steam the oyster until done. Place the burger on the bun, spread a heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise on the burger, or more according to taste. Top with the oyster, pressing it down into the mayonnaise. Squeeze two or three squirts of lemon juice on top of the oyster and burger.
