Leap Day is a great chance to try new things. I mean, we have a whole extra day this year, why not seize it?
This leap year, my new thing pretty much leaped right on to my plate! I’ve always been curious about trying frog legs, and last week I was finally able to try them out.
I figure the best way to get people to try new things is to present them in a familiar way. I was hanging out with some good friends of mine, and I told them we were going to eat some buffalo wings.
We did eat buffalo wings later that afternoon, but first I had everyone try one of these buffalo frog legs. The reaction was split down the middle. Two of us loved them, two of us didn’t. Either way, all four of us shared a new experience and I know we all talked about it afterward!
The legs come attached at the hip. Just cut them down the middle.
I packed them up, salted them, and added some buttermilk to marinade.
A quick breading, then pop them into the fryer. I normally don’t bread chicken wings because of the skin, but frog legs needed the breading.
I really loaded up the buffalo sauce because I was honestly a bit scared to try them!
