Snails are sauteed in garlic butter and stuffed in mushroom caps. When microwaving the mushroom caps, be careful they don't shrivel. Serve with garlic bread to lap up the running juices.

Very good! The mushroom adds a whole new dimension. It was not needed to cook the snails in the butter/garlic mixture as mine were canned they were already cooked. You do not need to have garlic bread but I would reccomend using some sort of bread to soak up the juices because that makes it taste AMAZING! I really enjoyed this recipe thank you so much!

Wonderful and sooooooooooo easy. I followed the recipe exactly the first time and liked them very much. Made them again for Christmas eve with a couple of changes. Set aside 2 whole escargot for each stuffing mushroom put rest in mini chopper with garlic and 1/4 small onion. Sauteed all in the butter then put the whole escargot in the caps and poured the rest over all before nuking the second time. Sooooooooooo good. Read More

I haven't had escargot for years. I loved them then...and I still love them now! I used the canned snails and they were yummy!! Next time I'll try to find fresh ones. Don't be put off by the the animal; they're as clean and as delicious as shrimp. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
