  • 24 escargot
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • French bread for serving


  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F.

  2. Rinse the escargot thoroughly in cold water and remove them from their shells.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, minced garlic, and finely chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Spoon a small amount of the garlic butter mixture into each escargot shell, filling it about three-quarters full. Place one escargot in each shell, making sure it is nestled in the butter mixture.

  5. Place the filled shells in a baking dish or escargot plate and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the butter is melted and bubbling.

  6. Remove the escargot from the oven and serve hot with slices of French bread to soak up the garlic butter sauce.

  7. Use a small fork or escargot tongs to remove the escargot from their shells and savor the buttery, garlicky flavor.

  8. Don't forget to pair your Escargot with Garlic Butter and Parsley with a glass of crisp white wine for a truly authentic French dining experience.
