Fried Frog's Legs

Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

We ate all sorts of wild game and critters when I was a kid living in rural Louisiana. My mom always said, just tell her it is chicken and she'll eat it. She knew that if I knew what I was really eating, then I would push my plate away. That is how she got me to eat my first frog leg.
