Escargot a La Bourguignonne

Escargot a La Bourguignonne created by theAmateurPastryChef

The simple and classic method for escargot. :) This is the way they are prepared at 13 Coins in Seattle.

Ready In:
22mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 14 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 shallots, minced well
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced well, to taste (I prefer extra garlic)
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 32 canned French snails
  • 32 snail shells

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine the butter, parsley, shallots, garlic, and brandy in a bowl and blend well.
  • Place a snail in each shell and fill the cavity with the seasoned butter. (If you do not have shells, you can use escargot baking dishes - this is actually how I prefer to make them. Most of such dishes hold 6 escargot apiece.).
  • Place on a baking pan and bake for twelve minutes.
  • Serve hot, as an appetizer, on individual snail dishes - or on small folded napkins on plates, to keep the shells from sliding about. Also, small silver forks to easily eat them with are a good idea.
  • Make sure to have plenty of good bread alongside, to mop up the delicious butter sauce! :).
  • Also good with a bit of Parmesan sprinkled on top of each.

    How do I keep escargot from popping out of the dish after baking?

    Superb with or without the brandy. I like extra garlic in mine, too.

    This was my 1st attempt at making my own escargot vs having them in a restaurant. I subbed freshly-snipped chives for the shallots, otherwise made as written & served it in 12-hole escargot dishes I borrowed for an elegant dinner party Sat nite. I served it with Recipe #185498 by lazyme (made on crusty rolls so as not to waste a drop of the lovely butter sauce). It was such an easy-fix & done in less than 15 min. The use of brandy was inspired & should not be omitted. I cannot rave enough about this recipe ~ a HUGE HIT w/all of us! Thx for sharing this great recipe! :-)

    Absolutely the BEST. Our Nephew and his wife are commited to cruising with us and if Escargo isn't on the menu we don't go. Just gesting but for an example we (my Nephew and I) on one cruise ate 6 plates ea. at one sitting. This is absolutely HEAVEN on a plate. OH, all you diet folks relax. We do this about once a year. Everything in moderation RIGHT. One thing that blows my mind is to see folks on a Cruise ship where Cuisine from around the world is every where eating fried chicken and Hamburgers YUK. If any of you have never tried this, PLEASE do, you are in for a Gastranomic delight. This recipe is the TOPS. Thank you and keep sending in them recipes. Cap'n Jack
