With only 6 days til Christmas,the grand kids are getting excited and the grownups are planning Christmas dinner..and we all decided to break away this year from our traditional ham dinner,and try some other recipes this year,so I’ve been seeking out Pinterest,(oh,how I love Pinterest) and finding some really good ideas…we are still having a small ham ,in case all other fails,but I hope these recipes turn out great,they look delicious and I hope the owners of these does not mind me sharing,so,these are not my recipes,I will put credit to each underneath….
ROASTED CORNISH HEN
ROASTED CORNISH HEN
- 1 Cornish hen
- ½ lemon
- Salt & pepper
- 5 garlic cloves
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Rub Cornish hen with lemon. Sprinkle generous amounts of salt & pepper all over the skin. My number one mistake when I was younger was not seasoning my meat enough with salt and pepper. Sprinkle every square inch of the Cornish hen with salt and pepper. Then sprinkle generous amounts of paprika all over the Cornish hen followed by a little bit of rosemary.
- Place the lemon in the cavity of the Cornish hen with the cloves of garlic. Roast the Cornish hen in a roasting pan.
- Roast in oven for 25 minutes.
- Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Baste the meat often with the juices from the pan. Continue roasting about 25 minutes longer. The Cornish hen is done when a meat thermometer shows the internal temperature has reached a safe point for poultry.
- Let the Cornish hen rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
