Frog Legs

This week's blog theme at eCrater Stores Network  has to do with frogs.   I don't have anything in my store that has to do with frogs so I thought I'd share a recipe from the Rhone region (southeastern) of France for cooking frog legs, just in case you've never had them and want to give them a try. This recipe is from Cuisine-France.  It's an easy recipe and only takes 15 minutes prep time and 4 minutes to cook.

12 frog legs
2 eggs
1 lemon juice
2 parsley sprigs, chopped
Dried bread crumbs
Frog Legs recipe serve 6
Step 1: Preheat oven at 375 F.
Step 2: Remove frog legs skin. Wash and drain.
Step 3: Add lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Step 4: Beat eggs in a bowl, add chopped parsley.
Step 5: Soak frog legs in the eggs.
Step 6: Crush bread into tiny crumbs.
Step 7: Roll frog legs into crumbs.
Step 8: Add oil in a pan. Fry frog legs in the oven for 3 to 4 minutes.
Wine suggestion: Riesling, Sancerre, dry white wine

Bon appetit!

If frog legs are not on your radar for trying I do have a lovely CD/CookBook from Sharon O'Connor called Dinners for Two.  It's full of yummy recipes that has nothing to do with frogs and has wonderful classical music to cook and eat by!  You can buy it at Le Petit Marche


  1. I'll skip the frogs legs but what a great blog! And the cookbook/cd combo is genius :D

  2. I gotta skip the frogs legs too but my Mom use to eat them. Your cookbook / cd combo sounds like it would be wonderful!

  3. I love frog legs! I used to go with my dad to catch them down the creek. When I lived in OH we had the biggest frogs I'd ever seen. Soooo good - like fried chicken! Great post!

  4. Always heard of fried frog legs, but never tried them. Don't think I'll try them now. Like your blog.

  5. I just couldn't get past Step 2. I'll wash the dishes if someone else will cook.
