Print Recipe


  • 12 frog legs, cleaned and dressed
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 quart water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp homemade onion powder
  • Homemade hot sauce
  • 1 cup Old London bread crumbs
  • 1 cup freshly chopped parsley oil for frying


In a large pan, add the lemon juice, salt and bring to a boil. Add frog legs and cook for 3 minutes. Remove and dry well.

In a bowl, beat the eggs and add the garlic and onion powder. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place the bread crumbs on a plate.

Dip the frog legs in the egg batter and then roll in the bread crumbs. Let sit to dry (more crispy and crumbs stay on better). Now heat the oil to fry in a heavy skillet.

When hot, carefully place frog’s legs in the oil and fry until golden brown on each side. Drain on paper towels and serve with sliced lemon and hot sauce.
