There are several ways of cooking them up. My buddy Thayer from Top Pin Outdoors loves to make an Old Bay and Buffalo Sauced frog legs recipe, using his oven, as you can see above. But below, we have a guy who goes a step further. He not only shows us what it looks like to eat these frog legs, he shows us how to catch, clean and cook them.
