Frogmore Stew (Low Country Boil)

Don’t worry.  No frogs were hurt in the production of this recipe.

Frogmore Stew is a close relative of a Low Country Boil – but without the crab legs or crawfish.  Some people still call it a Low Country Boil either way – it doesn’t really matter what you call it just so long as you make you a big ol’ pot of it!

I’m not even sure who came up with the name Frogmore Stew.  Was it first made by a frog lover, or maybe the inventor of this great dish was named Mr. Frogmore? I have no idea.

I am, however, completely sure you will fall in love with this recipe – and the way it is served – as much as we have.  After all, eating off of newspapers is classiness at it’s finest.

An added bonus – virtually no clean up.  Just wrap up your newspaper, chunk it in the trash, & go be a couch potato.  

This recipe has been approved by the official picky-eater taste tester committee.
