FRONT PORCH FROG LEGS

Front porch frog legs. 

 

This is a perfect snack for a fun night with a twist, or just for kicking back and rocking a couple of drinks with friends. Any way you decide to enjoy this dish it is sure to be one that will have you in a wild conversation by the end of the night. Bull frogs are not at all a common species in central Alberta so for that case these legs where supplied from a local exotic meat shop. This recipe can also be used with green frogs but be prepared for more difficult skinning due to the smaller size of the actual frog. Let’s get into it!
