Roast Cornish Game Hens with Stuffing: 1 box Stove Top Stuffing® (chicken flavored), prepared 2 Cornish game hens 2 tablespoons melted butter or margerine salt and pepper Heat the oven to 350 F. Fix the stuffing according to package directions. Rinse the hens and use your fingers to clean out the inside as good as possible. Stuff each hen with stuffing, place hens (breasts up, wings tucked under their backs) in a baking dish, try not to have them touching, a 13"x9"x2" dish will work. You can buy foil baking pans at most supermarkets, so when you're done you can just throw them away. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over each hen. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake hens at 350 F for an hour, if they each weigh less than 16 ounces or for an hour and twenty minutes if they weigh more. Turn the heat up to 400 F for the last 10 minutes of cooking to brown the hens. When done the leg should pull away from the body and the juices should run clear, not pink.
