Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Heat the vegetable oil and peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. The oil should be about 1/2 inch deep.

  • 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.

This was my first time ever making frog legs and only my second time to ever try them. I made as written and they were excellent! Not sure how these tasted like plastic to the other reviewer? They tasted like frog legs to me and darn good ones at that. I made these along with fried oysters and fried clams for my hubby's birthday dinner and he said that these stole the show. I preferred them dipped in cocktail sauce but he liked them with the Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce from this site. Thanks for sharing AnimalWhiz! Read More

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 exactly with the exception of using corn oil because that's all we had and they came out nicely. We served them with homemade cocktail sauce and jumped in (see what I've done there?) A squirt of lemon once they came out of the fryer would be good but not necessary. Great recipe and I'll be danged if I don't actually like frog legs! Read More

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 this site with the horseradish. So good! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

The only issue I had was I should have cooked all of the legs. They were oh so good! Read More
