Directions

How-to
Prepare Cream Base
1 In a medium saucepan over low heat, slowly melt butter, whisking often so it will not burn
Whisk in flour slowly to prevent clumps.
2 Cook mixture 1 minute, but don't allow it to gain color.
3 Slowly whisk in light cream and milk. Allow to simmer and thicken over medium heat, 15-20 minutes, stirring every 2-3 minutes to keep a smooth consistency

Cook Bacon, Shallots, Garlic & Oysters
4 While sauce is cooking, in a separate medium saucepan over medium heat, add bacon pieces and allow to cook and render, about 7-10 minutes or until brown
.
5 Add shallots and stir until translucent, about 3 minutes

6 Add garlic and saute 2 minutes

7 Add oysters with their liquor (juice) and stir until the edges of the oysters start to curl, 2-4 minutes

8 Add Cream Base & Spices
Add Cream Base & Spices
9 When milk mixture has reached its desired consistency (thick enough to coat the back of a spoon), whisk into the saucepan of aromatics and oysters
.
10 Season with cayenne pepper. Reduce heat to low, and allow all elements to simmer and combine flavors, about 15 minutes

11 Season with ¼ tsp black pepper and mix well

12 Taste and, only if needed, add ¼ tsp sea salt. Do this last, as the oysters will have a natural saltiness, and you don’t want to risk over salting

13 Let simmer 10 more minutes and it's ready to serve.
