Low Country Boil (Frogmore Stew)

Linda Griffith


This is such a good recipe to prepare at the beach or a party. It makes a lot and there is something for everyone. This is very popular in the south, especially in the low country. What I like about it is that the husband usually takes charge of this and cooks it outside. It's a man thing. The wife prepares other goodies inside
