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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place frog legs in a shallow oblong dish.

  4. Add flour and breadcrumbs to a heavy-duty plastic zip-lock bag; shake to mix.

I stumbled on frozen frog legs in the new grocery store in town and bought them on an impulse. My hubby and I were very excited to make them. They were "finger lickin' good". Any chance these could be baked? I'm always try to keep things light if I can. I will definately make these again.

NurseDi, I, too, grew up eating wild game, fish and yes, froglegs. For the longest time I wouldn't even taste one because of it being a...frogleg. (after all, I was a very young little girl) However, at dinner one night my dad made me taste one, "Just try it, take one little taste, and I won't ever ask you to again," he said. Later on during that same dinner my dad also had to make me STOP eating them because I ate so many he was afraid I would get sick! lol.... I've been hooked ever since. Thanks for posting! ...txgammi
