  1. Use coconut oil instead of butter doesn't taste but makes you frog legs healthy and good
  2. Great tasting frog legs. I'm single, so I just used a pound, which came to 7 legs. Otherwise followed the recipe. Used the sauce pan to brown the legs like it said, but they wouldn't all fit, so I used my iron skillet for the extras. The skillet browned them better than the sauce pan, so I'll probably brown them all in the skillet next time. Also I didn't have garlic butter, so I added a teaspoon of California Garlic mix (got it a Krogers) to the 4 teaspoons of butter. It worked just fine. Where were we supposed to use the corn oil?
  3. Very nice. My family loves it.
  4. Frog's legs once in a while is really a nice treat!
  5. Very, very good recipe. Thank you. Like Bergy, I used fresh garlic, and it couldn't have tasted better.
