Theses Cranberry Cornbread Stuffed Cornish Hens are a feast all in one! Aren't you salivating at the thought? We are!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (6-ounce) package cornbread stuffing mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1 (8-ounce) container soft cream cheese with chives and onions, divided
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, halved
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 4 (1- to 1-1/2-pound) Cornish hens
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine seasoning packet from stuffing mix, water, and celery in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.

  2. Add 1/4 cup cream cheese, stirring until blended. Stir in stuffing mix, cranberries, and pecans. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes.

  3. If desired, place remaining cream cheese under skin of Cornish hens by loosening skin from hens without totally detaching skin. Lightly spoon stuffing mixture into cavities of hens; close opening with skewers. Place hens, breast side up, in a roasting pan; brush hens with oil.
