RE: Lodge Cornish Game Hen Recipe
- Hope that this comes through. I've kept the recipe for a few years, but
haven't prepared it yet. I will, one of these days.
Stuffed Cornish Game Hens
Dutch Oven diameter
Game hens, 1 to 1 ¼ lbs each
Stuffing (use a favorite recipe)
1 ½ cups
Carrots, large, cut in
Ears of corn, medium size, husks and silks removed, cut into chunks
1 or 2
2 or 3
3 or 4
Salt and pepper
Rinse hens and pat dry. Fill body and breast cavities with stuffing.
Pour oil into Dutch oven and rub over the bottom. Place hens, breast
side up, in oven; dust birds with paprika and surround with carrots.
Put lid on oven.
Set up Dutch oven to cook. Beneath, use 10 freshly ignited coals for a
10" oven, 12 for a 12" oven and 17 for a 14" oven. Ignite remaining coals.
Cook hens 25 minutes; lift lid and add corn. Replace lid and arrange
remaining ignited coals evenly over lid. Cook until meat at the
thighbone is no longer pink (cut to test) about 20 minutes longer. Add
salt and pepper to taste.
Good luck, and keep your pots hot.
