Escargot à la Bourguignonne

Recipe from: Julesong
Servings: 8

1 cup butter, softened
¼ 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

Preheat the oven to 350°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.
