TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours
MAKES: 2 servings


  • 2 cups seasoned stuffing croutons
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 Cornish game hens (20 to 24 ounces each)
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 envelope brown gravy mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • Dash ground cloves


  1. In a large bowl, combine the croutons, water and butter. Loosely stuff into hens. Place breast side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan; tie drumsticks together.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the glaze ingredients. Bring to a boil. Spoon half over hens. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180° for hens and 165° for stuffing, basting occasionally with remaining glaze. Yield: 2 servings.
