How to make it

  • 1. In a 12” cast iron skillet heat the olive oil and cook the bacon a bit.
  • 2. Add the onion, garlic, escargot, bell and chili peppers and cook until onion is translucent.
  • 3. Remove from heat and let cool just a bit.
  • 4. While things are cooking give the eggs a good beating in a mixing bowl then add all the ingredients except the butter, cheese and what’s in the skillet and fold well.
  • 5. When the stuff in the skillet has cooled just a bit add it to the mixing bowl and fold the whole lot together gently but thoroughly .
  • 6. Return the skillet to the stove over a VERY low flame, drop in the butter and when that bubbles a bit add the contents of the mixing bowl and spread around evenly; cover tightly and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how hot the flame.
  • 7. Uncover, sprinkle the Swiss cheese around evenly and cover. For five minutes with the burner OFF.
  • Move to a plate and serve with maybe a sprig or two of parsley for garnish and a Costa del Sole to wash it down.

    Ok, I give. Escarot in a can? At Kroger in Kentucky? I'll have to search but somehow I doubt I'm gonna find it. Will have to try the specialty stores. Most of the snails I see are crawling across my driveway.

    The recipe does look good but the ingredients are going to be hard to find.

    Like some of mine are hard for you.

    Well I sit here and pondered...

    Should I or Should'nt I...after all, I probably made his eyes bleed with all the posted comments today...


    Heck,I go where angels fear to tread...


    Here goes

    To get a handle on modern French philosophers,just assume that everything nonphysical is real,while everything of substance is unreal.So,sadness is real,but escargot is not.

    I'm ducking,you can't find me,I'm behind the computer screen....Click! :o)

    Wishing you and your family a good day.

    Kindest of Regards
