How to Make Thanksgiving for two

Step-by-Step

  • 1directions are in order of what the ingredients are for:
  • 2Cornish game hens for two

    Serves 2
    Directions:

    In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients;

    sprinkle over hen halves.
    In a small skillet, cook hen halves over medium-high heat

    in oil until browned on both sides.
    Transfer to an ungreased 11x7-inch baking dish; set aside

    and keep warm.
    In the same skillet, saute green onion and garlic until

    tender.
    Stir in broth and orange juice concentrate; pour over hen

    halves.
    Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or

    until meat is tender and juices run clear.
    To serve, drizzle with pan juices and sprinkle with

    almonds and parsley.
  • 3Turkey and stuffing for two

    Serves 2
    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a medium

    nonstick skillet over medium heat.
    Add shallot and celery; cook, stirring occasionally,

    until softened, 2 minutes.
    Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl, stir in sage and

    thyme; let cool for 5 minutes.
    Meanwhile, place cutlets between sheets of plastic wrap

    and pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet or a

    heavy skillet until 8 to 10 inches wide and less than 1/4

    inch thick. Be careful not to tear the meat. Remove the

    top sheet.
    Add bread to the celery mixture; stir in 2 tablespoons

    broth, salt and pepper.
    Place half the stuffing mixture in the middle of one of

    the pounded cutlets; compress the stuffing into a log.
    Fold and roll the meat over the stuffing. Tie in three

    places with kitchen string.
    Repeat with the remaining stuffing and the second cutlet.
    Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter

    in a medium ovenproof skillet over medium heat.
    When the butter melts, add the turkey rolls and brown on

    all sides, turning occasionally, about 4 minutes.
    Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the

    turkey is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
    Transfer the rolls to a serving plate; tent with foil to

    keep warm.
    Return the skillet to medium-high heat (take care, the

    handle will still be hot); add vermouth (or wine).
    Cook until dark and almost completely evaporated,

    scraping up any browned bits, about 2 minutes.
    Add the remaining 1/4 cup broth; cook for 1 minute, just

    to reduce slightly.
    Remove the string from the turkey; cut into 1/2-inch-

    thick slices, if desired, and spoon half the sauce over

    each portion. Serve warm.
