How to Make Cornish Game Hens with Stuffing

Step-by-Step

  1. Make stuffing according to pkg. directions. Add in apples and bacon when fluffing with fork. Set aside.
    Remove anything inside the hens and rinse inside with cold water. Pat dry with paper towels. (Don't rub or you can have bits of paper towel left in there. Not good.)
    In small saucepan, melt butter on low. Add seasonings and spices. Stir well to mix. Remove from heat.
    When stuffing has cooled, stuff each bird. You may have a bit left over. Place in small baking dish with lid for extra helpings. ;) Place hens into metal or glass 13x9 baking pan. Tie legs together and tuck wings under. Baste hens with a little butter mixture to coat. Bake in preheated 350 oven for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Baste with butter mixure every 15-20 minutes. When done, baste with any last remaining butter mixture over them. Tent with foil covering to keep warm, and let rest til serving for at least 5-10 minutes.
