Prep: 30 min. Bake: 1 hour + standing

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 2 cups cubed day-old bread
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit bits
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Dash ground allspice
  • CORNISH HENS:
  • 2 Cornish game hen (20 to 24 ounces each)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons honey

Directions

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and celery; cook and stir until tender. Add the bread, fruit bits, water and allspice; cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
Loosely stuff hens with stuffing. Tuck wings under hens; tie drumsticks together. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place breast side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Combine butter and honey; brush over hens.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reads 180° for hens and 165° for stuffing, basting occasionally with pan drippings. Cover loosely with foil if hens brown too quickly. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Yield: 2 servings.
