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.
