Mushrooms stuffed with snails

This is from my numero uno resource James Beard and I love this recipe. I usually put more garlic in the butter but with a mushroom base, I restrain myself a la Dr. Strangelove, so that you can taste the mushrooms also.

  1. First make the Snail butter: Cream the softened butter with the shallots, garlic, 1/4 cup of chopped parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Saute the mushroom caps in butter until just cooked through.
  3. Arrange on baking sheet hollow side up.
  4. Coat the snails with the snail butter, and place one in each cap.
  5. Sprinkle with additional chopped parsley.
  6. Heat in a 450F oven for 10 minutes and serve immediately.

Exactly like I always make my escargots!! I often sprinkle grated parmesan over the tops before I put them in the oven. Lots of garlic and butter, these are yummy!
