"A special recipe for Escargots Bouguigon fans. These are the best escargots.(snails) I found this recipe in a Québec site and it changes the rubbery texture you get with canned escargots. Chose the smaller escagots(36-40)..much better. This is an appetizer for for 4 or a main course for 2.Add a chopped shallot and parsley to the buttter"

"Oh, make no mistake -- this is totally delicious! The only objection I have is that the long simmering time did affect the "natural" taste of the snails, making them rather too soft and tasteless. I think that marinating them for 5 minutes in hot consomm? would have been better. I did not use as much cheese as the recipe says, and I added finely chopped parsley to the melted butter and garlic. Mine also needed a pinch of salt -- could have been that the mozzarella was fairly bland. But yum, I love escargots, and we had a nice rich lunch with these! Thanks!"
"OMG! I LOVE YOU! LOVE YOU LOVE YOU!!! I am lost for words! If I could rate this 100 (yes 100) stars I would! I love Escargots and when I saw this recipe I knew it was for me. This was restaurant style Escargots! There is no need to change anything about this, just PERFECT! Thank you....and did I say I Love You for posting this recipe? LOL Made by member of "Cooks With Dirty Faces" for ZWT5 I just want to say that I have made this recipe 3x and everytime I am in heaven :) My youngest daughter always asks me "about every 2 weeks" when am I going to make it again? You should hear us at the table going mmm mmm yum ;)"
"I can't believe how much resturants charge for this dish after making this recipe. I used large snail next time will use the smaller ones. Made as directed except I did add a splash of cognac to the broth maybe a tablespoon. Les meilleurs escargots que j'ai mangÃ©s. Vraiment divin. Served as an appetizers for a French at home meal. Served with a French baquette instead of toast. Made for ZWT 5 for team Zaar Chow Hounds"
"I added one diced shallot. Plus 2 Tbs finely shredded parsley. And 2 Tbs cognac. FABULOUS !!!"
"I second daisygrl64's review to a T!Loved it!"
