Hangtown Fry with Parmesan and Fresh Herbs
Ingredients25 m servings 559 cals
- Preheat the broiler; place the rack about 5 inches from the broiling unit.
- Whisk eggs in a bowl. Add cream, hot sauce, basil, oregano, black pepper, and 1 tablespoon of the grated Parmesan cheese.
- Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Melt the butter in the skillet and swirl it around to coat the pan evenly. Place the oysters in the skillet and brown on both sides, about 1 minute on each side. Let the liquid reduce a bit, about 30 seconds longer.
- Slowly pour the egg mixture over the oysters, keeping the oysters evenly distributed in the pan. After about 30 seconds, shake the pan slightly but do not stir. After about 3 minutes when the bottom and sides of the eggs begin to set, sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and place the pan under the broiler.
- Broil until the eggs begin to puff around the edges and the top is nicely browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven; sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve immediately from the skillet in wedge-shaped pieces.

Oysters and eggs, who would have known! I used this recipe as inspiration and made mine with garlic, onion, red bell pepper, bacon and a splash of cognac. Very good!
This recipe was really great. I loved the flavor of fresh herbs with the eggs. To Katydid68, I think it's unfair for you to rate this recipe considering your lack of proper ingredients and s...
Tried this this morning. Maybe I shouldn't give it only 4 stars since I didn't have all the ingredients on hand and had to make do with dried seasonings and evaporated milk. Also, what I didn't ...
shucking the oysters (or whatever shellfish I bought; whatever was cheapest)was the hardest part. Nuke them in the micro for a little bit. They pop right open. Nice recipe.
It's raining here at the beach in SoCal, windy, grey--dark even. . . Ahhh. . . This recipe made me think of my fine days in Seattle where I used to make hang town fry and recipes like it, using...
I liked it but, my wife couldn't go for the oysters. She likes clams. Maybe next time.
