Traditional Detroit Frog Legs

Dip them in milk, then in flour, and sauté them slowly in butter in a frying pan over medium heat until golden brown all over — six to eight minutes. Remove to hot serving dish, salt and pepper lightly, and sprinkle with lemon juice and finely chopped parsley. Over all, pour what remains of the browned butter in the frying pan and garnish with a slice of lemon.
