Default Oyster Stew

I tried this today...

I tried to cut it by 1/3. I used 10 oysters, but not enough for a good sized bowl.

I added some hot sauce before enjoying.

I used a small food processor for the prep, except the green onion and garlic, which I chopped small.

More Oysters is better though.

I also substituted Pancetta that was left over from another recipe, instead of bacon...

Better I think.

Lesson: To chop bacon (or Pancetta) before cooking, put it in the freezer for 15 minutes.
