This is more of a “how to” cook them, than it is by a certain amount. However, no matter how many you choose to make, the resulting cooking method will be the same.
- Frog Legs
- Salt water
- Eggs, beaten
- Finely crushed Cracker Crumbs
Remove frog from legs, or if you prefer legs from frogs. (lol) Discard all but the legs. Skin, clean thoroughly and soak in salt water to take away the fishy-froggy taste for several hours or overnight if you prefer.
Salt legs and dip in beaten egg. Roll in fine cracker crumbs. Fry in butter over medium heat until golden. Approximately 15-20 minutes with the lid ON until the last few minutes of cooking. Removing lid the last few minutes to crisp the legs.
**NOTE: To first time fryers!
Legs WILL jump up and down in the pan the first few seconds of cooking. This is normal and is due to the contraction of the tendons. DO NOT be alarmed, they really aren’t trying to jump out of the pan. 😛
