Stuffed Cornish Game Hens

Stuffed Cornish Game Hens

Ever had a cornish game hen?

No?

Well, you should.

They are simple to prepare and make an elegant dinner. These are perfect for a dinner for two, a small dinner party, or if you don’t want to make a Thanksgiving day turkey, then cook up a couple of these and you’ll be ready for dinner in a couple of hours.

I wanted to make a special dinner for two a couple of weeks ago, so I decided that stuffed cornish game hen would be very elegant. All I needed was two cornish game hens and a box of stuffing and I had dinner on the table in a couple of hours with minimal effort.

Give these a try and let me know what you think.

Do you have a favorite go-to dish for a special dinner for two? If so, please share.

Enjoy!
