Escargot Recipes?

Recommended Posts

We have a couple of tins of escargot and plan to use them this Saturday. I usually follow Craig Claiborn's NY Times cook book recipe and sometimes stuff them in mushrooms.

Any other recipes?

Thanks in advance.

Nothing fancy here but it's good.

1 clove garlic finely minced

3 oz butter softened (room temp)

8 oz Feta cheese

1 tsp Parsley chopped

Mix all well. Place escargots in shells, pack with mixture and broil.

I haven't treid this but you could wrap individual esgargots and mixture in puff pastry and bake.

You can pack them in Mussel shells as I have done here:

Boil, skin-on smallest red potatoes, keep firm, slice top off, fill with the snails, top off with herbed galicky Boursin, bake in oven at the highest temp, serve with garlic toast points and Mache salad with french vinegairete

ChefCrash, those look terrific. The only problem is, my wife is lactose intolerant. :sad:

Peter, same concern, but I really like the idea of putting the escargot in something other than puff pastry or mushrooms.

If you have one of those escargot serving dishes a nice twist on the typical French garlic butter and parsely sauce is to take butter, chopped cilantro, a squeeze of lime, and some finely chopped jalapenos. Essentially the same concept, but with different flavors.

Mano, I have a couple of escargot recipes that I love. One in particular I have been making for over 20 years. I'd have to rewrite the recipes in order to post them to recipe gullet so I will email them to you.

The first , Escargot in Toast Cups is an appetizer that can be made cocktail size or can be made a little bit bigger and served as a first course.

And the second is little purses made with puff pastry and filled with Escargot and Stilton.
