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 isclassiness 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.

Bring a large stockpot full of the water to a boil - stir in the Old Bay seasoning. Add potatoes & cook for 15 minutes. Add sausage & cook for 5 minutes more. Add corn & cook for another 5 minutes. Stir in the shrimp & cook until the shrimp are pink (another 5-8 minutes).
Drain in a colander. Lean over the colander & have a quick steam facial. Line your table with newspaper, & dump your frogmore stew onto it.
