Cornish game hens basted with a compound butter
Everything comes out so pefect! We are talking crispy skin, tender and juicy on the inside.
Basically a compound butter is butter with something else added in it. Fresh herbs are the bomb bc you cannot over do them.
Here's my spin on this.
I think if you don't have one of these you could easily just bake in the oven and baste with your butter and results would also be delish.
2 smallcornish game hens, or other small fowl
1 Tbspminced garlic from jar
1 tspfresh parsley (using dried use less)
10 mediumfreh sage leaves, fine chopped (using dried use less)
1/2 tspeash salt and peppet
How to Make Cornish game hens basted with a compound butter
- Attach birds to the spit.
- Melt butter, I use the defrost cycle of the microwave.
- Stir in your herbs, you can experiment and use any combo of things you like, I especially like garlic, sage, and parsley.
