Generally served in single-serving plates, our version is cooked in a skillet or a baking dish and is perfect for a crowd.

Escargots à la Bourguignonne are tender & delicious. Serve with a crusty baguette for sopping up the butter sauce & you have the perfect quick & easy app.

The garlic-herb sauce in this dish is almost as delicious as the tender and earthy escargots themselves. Serve with slices of crusty baguette for sopping up the delicious buttery sauce and you have the perfect quick and easy appetizer.

I’ve found that canned snails work well in this recipe and are readily available online and in some larger supermarkets which have made this once difficult and pretentious appetizer into one that can be whipped up anytime — and for a crowd!

  2. Thanks so much for this brilliant recipe. Made a smaller portion for my mom and myself last night, and instead of using as much salt in the cooking, I added a heap of grated Parmesan that melted in with the hot sauce – absolutely divine! It was so easy to make and we already had all the ingredients.
