“This is the BEST way to make a Po Boy! I can't believe it is not here already. And be sure to LOAD THIS SUCKER WITH OYSTERS like we do in New Orleans! Yummy Goodness!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350º.
  2. Lightly beat egg, milk, 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoons black pepper in a bowl.
  3. Mix flour, 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoons black pepper in a shallow baking dish.
  4. Mix cornmeal, 1 teaspoons salt, and cayenne pepper in another small baking dish.
  5. Dredge 8 oysters in flour, knocking off excess, then dip into egg mixture, letting excess drip off. Then dredge in cornmeal mixture, knocking off excess. Transfer to a rack or plate until frying. Repeat with remaining oysters in batches of 6-8, until they are all done.
  6. Heat oil in a 4-qt. pot over high heat to 375º.
  7. While oil is heating, cut bread into 4 equal portions (half and half again) then split horizontally all the way through. Put bread in oven, directly on the rack, until warm - about 5 minute.
  8. While bread is heating, gently drop 1/3 of the oysters into the hot oil and fry, stirring occasionally, until golden - about 45-60 sec. Transfer to papertowels to drain. Fry remaining oysters in the same manner and small batches.
  9. Spread bread with mayonnaise topping with lettuce and TONS of oysters.
