Cornish Hens with Sausage and Wild Rice Stuffing
This recipe was given to me by Steve's Aunt Melissa. I've been meaning to make it for a very long time but it never seemed to make the menu. Now that I've tried it I will make it more often. It was excellent! I can't wait to use this stuffing on a nice big oven stuffer chicken!
Melissa's Cornish Hens with Sausage and Wild Rice Stuffing
6-8 Cornish Hens
1 lb Italian sausage (removed from casing)
1 large shallot chopped
4 or 5 cloves garlic chopped
¼ c white wine
½ lb sliced mushrooms
1 pkg Uncle Ben’s wild rice
Cook the sausage, shallots, and garlic in olive oil. When cooked, turn up heat and add ¼ cup white wine and ½ lb sliced mushrooms. Cook all together and put aside. Cook Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice (1 pkg) as directed. Add to stuffing and stuff hens. Rub Hen’s with paprika and lemon juice. Heat oven to 350 degrees and cover Hens with foil. After 1/2 hour remove foil. Cook Hen’s for 1 hour.
