We used to eat 'em a lot. I used to love to go frog gigging. We always just fried them. I did have then at a Thai restaraunt on time and they were really good.

In Boy Scouts we used to spear them then clean them up and sautee' in garlic butter over a campfire using a cast iron skillet for a snack. I usually order them if they are on the menu. When I go out to eat, I like to order stuff I normally don't make at home.

Oh YUMMY!!!!!
Frog legs are great!
I even thought of cooking them for an "Anything but" comp some day.

See KickAss's site-he has a great writeup on them if I remember correctly.

Frog legs are good eats! The bigger the better. I had some at a little place in St. Thomas one year and they were called "Kermit's Kickers" on the menu.

I like frog legs but, I can't get the image out of head of my grandmother killing the frogs before she cleaned them....she would reach into the bucket, grab one by its legs and give it a good whack to the head on the corner of the house.....she had one hell of a backhand swing!

We usually fry them just like fish. We had some for supper a few weeks back. We went to Shoney's for their saefood buffet down at the Lake of the Ozarks and there was an unlimited supply hot and fresh. When we left I was hoppin to the truck I ate so many. Good Eats for sure!

They are on most all the seafood buffets around here. Frog legs, fried oysters, fried and boiled shrimp, catfish and usually gumbo.

I like them fried too. Usually with a heavier batter than fish or shrimp so the meat kind of steams inside batter while cooking.

Only time I ever had them, a neighbor had grilled them. I remember them as being tasty.

Man, I worked at a Shoney's in KY. for awhile.
The first ingredient on all their boxed stuff was gelatinized wheat starch.

The kids working there had no idea about real food.
By the time I left I had them all calling the food things like blow chunks, flappers, what have you.

BOT:Never have tried frogs legs though.

Like most, we fry them up here. My brother is a big frog gigger, and he saves all he gets 'till the end of the season and has a big frog leg feed. I bring a pile of fresh caught catfish and we are in business. Good stuff!!!

I've only ever had them in France, it's not like there is much of a Market for them here in the UK, and then I've only had them fired in garlic and butter.

You'd have to use a subtle wood when smoking them or you'd loose the flavour of the meat.
