Fried Frog Legs

Ransome and his cousins were at the creek last night and came home with a pouch full of frog legs. Now those are some fresh legs...heehee I fried them for their lunch today and Ransome did not care for them, go figure. Now Ransome's little sister, Raine, just loved them,
she is such a country girl. :) Ransome and his cousins have brought in a bounty this week from Beaty's Creek. We've had fish, crawdads, and now frog legs courtesy of these young men. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


20 frog legs-cleaned
2 cups white cornmeal
1 cup flour
3 T black pepper
3 T cayenne pepper
5 T sea salt
3 eggs
2 cups of milk

Soak frog legs in a mixture of 3 beaten eggs and 2 cups milk for 30 minutes. Mix together all of your dry ingredients. Add your frog legs a few at a time to the dry mix. Shake until well coated. Add to a caste iron skillet that has about an inch of oil in it that has been heated up until a tiny bit of four sizzles when added. Cook until browned on one side and then flip and brown the other side. I cooked mine for about 4 minutes on each side but time really depends on the size of the frog legs. Serve hot.

This is a quick and really good dinner. Everyone makes their tostada a little different so it is great if you have picky eaters. I like lots of sour cream on mine and Raine loves refried beans on hers. However you make them I bet this will be a dinner you will make often. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


12 corn tortillas
Hamburger-browned and seasoned with salt and pepper
Sabra Salsa
Sour Cream
Refried Beans

Heat oil in a cast iron skillet, when hot, fry tortilla until crispy. I cook each one for about 2 minutes on each side. I keep mine in a warm oven so they will stay hot. That is really all you have to do. Layer with what you like on a tostada. I like, hamburger, cheese, salsa, and loads of sour cream! When I don't have homemade salsa the Sabra Salsa is my favorite one to use. It tste fresh!

KODAK and Foodbuzz Tastemaker Outreach

I was so happy to be selected to get a FREE photobook from KODAK! I just love to scrapbook but always seem to run short of time. I have always wanted to make a photo book online but never have until now! Once I figured out what pictures I wanted to use and how to use them, it was a breeze. Believe me, I am totally old school when I scrap. KODAK made it so easy to make them online that this will definitely be a way for me to make Christmas or birthday gifts for the grandparents! Below is a link that Kodak is giving to readers of my blog for 40% off of a medium or large photo book!! How great is that?? Copy and paste the link below and get started. It is too hot to cook much, so scrap for the day.
