If you enjoy oysters you will love these easy oyster fritters. They are really good and pretty easy to make. They make a great appetizer or side dish. We love them dipped in our Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. Not a fan of ranch these are also great dipped in our cocktail sauce. Either works great! If you love oysters like we do you will probably need to double this recipe. They go fast!
Easy Oyster Fritters Ingredients Needed:

Doing some research on the oyster fritter, I found that many people like oyster fritter sandwiches. There are many different variations but I bet that would be delicious. It can be hard to find fresh oysters in certain regions, I’ve made these with canned oysters many times and they are delicious.
