250 grams snails
50 grams cepes (boletus edulis mushrooms)
80 grams fresh bacon
1 big onion
3 garlic cloves
2 branches fresh thyme
olive oil
freshly ground black pepper

First clean, wash and boil the snails as said in this post. Now, cover the surface of a pan with olive oil, when hot, add the bacon in dices. When golden, add the boiled snails (only the snails, not the water you used) and stir for 8 minutes at medium heat. Sprinkle with salt and black ground pepper. Take the snails and bacon out of the pan and reserve in a plate. In the same oil, cook the onion (chopped) until it gets transparent. Add a branch of thyme. Stir and pull it out after 3 minutes. Add the cepes cut in dices to the pan with the onion. Stir for 3 more minutes at medium heat. Pour the snails and bacon back to the pan and cook for 20 minutes approximately at medium/low heat. Stir now and then. Mince the garlic, add to the snails and turn the heat off when fragrant.
