Grilled Frog Legs

Frog legs are all lean meat with no fatty tissue, so they’re a delicious low-in-calories meal. In my opinion, Everglades’s frog legs are the plumpest, most delectable you will ever find, but then again, Cross Creeks are good, too. Cover the legs with a pie tin while they’re cooking. That way they will come out moist.

2 pounds fresh frog legs

1 quart milk or stale beer for soaking frog legs

5 eggs, beaten

1 ½  quarts milk

Flour for dredging

Salt and granulated garlic to taste


Lemon wedges and fresh parsley, chopped, to garnish

1. Soak frog legs in milk, water, or beer for at least 2 hours.

2. Season to taste with salt and granulated garlic. Mix together eggs and milk then dip in frog legs. Roll in flour coating all parts of legs well.

3. Heat a buttered grill, griddle or heavy fry pan. Add frog lets, and then cook until golden brown on each side, about 10 minutes, turning once or twice. Use two large spatulas for ease in turning.

4. Garnish with lemon wedges and chopped parsley.
