I have had frog legs plenty of times, but I have never eaten a whole frog. I think that is why this recipe intriguers me. It offers a new spin on a old favorite and of course there is bacon so what is not to love about that?
The recipe comes from The Iron Reverand – Jake Slayer. If I were you I would give his page a follow he is always posting cool stuff.

1. Set up your grill for direct grilling – medium heat
2. Place ¼ of an apple into the body cavity of each frog
3. Wrap each frog in 2 slices of bacon
