Snails actually aren’t that bad. Most times they are cooked with so much butter and garlic that that is all you taste. Here’s one of those such recipes for those who are new to escargot.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup garlic, chopped
  • ½ cup parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup chives, chopped
  • ¼ cup basil, chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ cup bread crumbs.
  • ½ cup Gruyere cheese, grated
Instructions
  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. In a bowl mix together the butter, garlic, parsley, chives, salt, pepper and basil until well combined. Chill.
  3. Bring a pot of water to bowl and add the snails. Simmer and cook for 8 minutes.
  4. Drain the snails and place in a small baking dish.
  5. Top each snail with a dollop of butter and sprinkle with bread crumbs and cheese.
  6. Broil in oven 5 to 8 minutes until bubbling. Serve with fresh bread to mop up the butter.
