Sometimes I wonder why I fight against the main stream. If I hear from too many people that something is great I automatically assume that it sucks. I don’t know why. Because usually what happens is that I finally give in to see what all the hype is about. Then I end up being the loser who is 6 months behind the times, praising something everyone else has already done/read/saw/experienced and were probably the one who told me to do/read/see/experience it in the first place.
My latest addiction to add to the list of:
Da Vinci Code
Sons of Anarchy
and Breaking Bad
is Duck Dynasty. I know. I know. How did I not watch this until now?? I love all it’s corny, fake reality, redneckness. And in honour of it, here is a recipe for frogs legs from Willie Boss Hog himself.
Duck Dynasty Garlic Frog’s Legs
Bulb of garlic
Bunch of frog legs (given to me by a guy -Scott- who I met at a dounut store on Sunday morning, it’s an LA thing)
Garlic infused grapeseed oil
Soak frog legs in beer for an hour or so, season – I used our Duck Commander Zesty Cajun seasoning, pepper, and blackening seasoning. Roll frog legs in flour then set aside. In a large black skillet bring butter and grape seed oil up to high (don’t burn the butter, it will brown when burning) not much oil and butter, just about half an inch or so. When oil and butter starts sizzling, put frog legs in and brown on each side; should be about half way up on frogs, just enough to brown. If butter gets low, throw another half stick in. Set browned frog legs to side, now, with what’s left in the pan (which is the BEST of what’s left), add white wine, garlic (whole pods, peeled), mushrooms and cook for a few minutes. Add all of your frog legs back in on top of this, put lid on and cook in oven for about 30 mins on 300. According to how big legs are, these tonight were HUGE so they didn’t cook fully in browning process. If they are small then cook less. Meat will be falling off the bone, you will know its done, believe me!
You can’t mess frog legs up, they are the best! Go find a ditch, catch some frogs and get to cookin’!!
