Snails Menetrel (Escargots a la Menetrel)

1 lb Butter
1/2 c Parsley, chopped
1 tb Crushed garlic
3 tb Shallots, chopped
12 ea Canned anchovy fillets
1 tb Salt
1 ts Pepper
1 tb Quatre-epices
100 ea Canned snails
1/2 c White wine (optional)

Make snail butter by working the butter with a mixture of chopped parsley, garlic, shallots and anchovy fillets. Season with the salt, pepper and spice, then work through a fine sieve. Place a piece of butter the size of a bean inside each snail shell. Add the snail, then close up the shell with some more butter, pressing it down firmly. Arrange the snails on a dish and moisten with the wine if liked. Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and bake in a hot oven for 8 minutes.
