Number of Servings: 16


    8 Cornish gamehens
    1/4c lemon juice
    2 tsp worchestershire
    1 tsp honey
    4 cups fresh (frozen ok) blueberries
    4 tsp granualted sugar
    4 Tbs butter (salted/unsalted. OPTIONAL)


Butter is completely optional.

Original recipe suggests to put one sage leaf into each bird. Tastes great without it!

If you forgot to soften the butter you can slip it under the skin of the bird, if cooking with skin on.

Tastes great with rice pilaf and caesar salad


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Line a pan with nonstick foil.

Sprinkle the cavities of the Cornish hens with salt (optional) and black pepper (fresh ground the best).

In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and honey. Brush the mixture over the exterior of the birds. Sprinkle with salt (optional) and pepper.

Toss the blueberries with the sugar.

Stuff an equal amount of blueberry/sugar mixture into each game hen cavity and place breast side up in prepared pan.

Brush each Cornish hen with the softened butter (optional) and top with a whole fresh sage leaf.

Bake for 1 hour. Loosely tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Serving Size: Makes 16 1/2 bird servings.

Number of Servings: 16
