I love Escargots. I love butter. Combine the two and it’s a pair made in heaven. I had the chance to indulge in these yummy morsels in Paris and they were the best ones ever. The size of these escargots was not a joke. Yes, in this case size does matters.  

So, when I saw these (although not the same ones as in Paris) at a local market, it was a given what fate had instored.

Like the ones in Paris, these too were ginormous. 

Slather the openings with a generous portion of an herb butter concoction (should be made at room temp, allow to harden in fridge until ready to use). Cilantro was used instead of parsley b/c I had none at hand.  Adding too much shallots may make it bitter.

Bake in oven at 325 for about 10-15 mins or until butter starts to melt and sizzle. Over baking will cause the snails to be hard and chewy.

Enjoy them w/ some homemade croutons. Such simple delicacy! 

Give them a try and let me know what ya think!

Till next post, Kellie.
