  1. Rinse the frog's legs and pat dry; set aside. In a large resealable bag, combine the saltine cracker crumbs, flour, cornmeal, onion, salt and pepper. Shake to mix. In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil and peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. The oil should be about 1/2 inch deep.
  3. Dip the frog's legs into the milk and egg, then dip into the cracker mixture until evenly coated. Carefully place them in the hot oil. Cook until golden brown on each side, about 5 minutes per side. If the legs start to brown too quickly, reduce the heat to medium. Drain on paper towels before serving.

My husband saw frog legs at the store, gave me that look, and so here we are. I've never in my life tried or cooked frog legs but I was pleasantly surprised with these! We followed the recipe ...

I fry mine with Beazells cajun seasoning and zatarains fish fry and serve with yum yum sauce!!!

Made as directed but left the skin on. I would never fry chicken w/ the skin removed. Same holds true to FL's. Make sure you salt and pepper well, it does make a difference.

My husband wanted frog legs, but if you're not feeling adventurous enough to try them... use chicken with this recipe instead. Wonderful breading for frying. Paired with the "Dipping Sauce" on t...

Perfect!! I added some Old Bay (because I’m from Maryland, so of course!) and dressed with Sriracha/Miracle Whip sauce. They were a hit!
