Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cloves garlic, minced

This is the classic French method for cooking snails.

  • Drain shells, rinse then drain thoroughly on paper towels.
  • Stir together the butter, garlic, chives and parsley until well blended.
  • Put about 1 tsp of the butter mixture in each shell, then tuck in a snail.
  • Seal each snail with more of the butter mixture,
  • Add some grated cheese on top of each snail and press in.
  • Place snails, cheese side up in a baking dish.
  • Bake in a preheated 500 degree oven for about 5 minutes or until the butter has melted and the cheese is lightly browned.
  • Serve hot along with crusty bread.
