This recipe isn't at all difficult even though it does take a little time and work. I think it is well worth it. It's a great recipe for a Romantic Dinner, and fit for a King. I serve it with Wild Rice and a Salad. I also double the stuffing mixture as well as the gravy mixture so we can dip every bite!

  2. Cook 1 cup of the onions and 1/2 cup of the mushrooms in butter until tender and liquid evaporates.
  3. Combine with cubed bread, chopped egg, sour cream, garlic salt, and pepper.
  4. Lightly stuff hens with mixture; truss. Place hens, breast side up in a large shallow pan. Cover with foil and roast in preheated over for 60 minutes.
  5. Uncover and baste with drippings. Spoon off and save 2 T. of drippings. Return hens to oven and roast 30 to 40 minutes more uncovered, until tender and browned. Allow to rest.
