How to Make Stuffed Cornish Game Hens

Add cranberries and pecans. Cook for another two minutes or so.

Crumble the cornbread muffins over the cranberry mixture.

Add herbs and spices. Then stir in stock and salt and pepper to taste.

Pat dry and season the birds. Loosely stuff each with 1/3 cup of stuffing.

Bake the Cornish hens for about 1 hour at 400°F, until golden brown.

Place Cornish hens on a platter, and serve with extra stuffing on the side.
