Grenouilles Savoyardes (Frog Legs Fricassee)

2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 onions, chopped
24 skewered frog legs
3 ½ Tablespoons butter
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon vinegar


  1. Remove the frog legs from the skewers; cut off the toes with scissors.
  2. Lightly brown the garlic and onions in the butter. Add the frog legs and sauté rapidly, turning them over. Lower the heat and cook 25 minutes.
  3. Pour the eggs, slightly beaten, over the cooked frog legs. Let them set.
  4. Remove to a serving dish. Pour the vinegar in the hot pan, bring to a boil and pour over the frog legs.

To test if the frog legs are sufficiently cooked, lightly pinch the flesh, which is soft when they are done.
