The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Cornish game hens

I love food that looks as good as it tastes and this is definitely one of those recipes. It’s perfect for company too.

What you’ll need:
4 Cornish game hens, washed
3 carrots
2 onions
1 stalk of celery
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 orange
Desired seasonings
Chop the carrots, onions and peppers into large chunks and place in the bottom of a roasting pan. Slice up the celery and add it to the pan. Place each bird side by side on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle with desired seasoning. I just use a season salt/brown sugar rub (equal parts of salt and sugar). Cut the orange into wedges and place one wedge into each hen. Place in a 450 degree oven and cook for 45 minutes. The hens will be nice and crispy! Remove from pan and serve. This is great with cornbread dressing or cornbread salad. Serves 4.
Cost:
Cornish game hens – $2.50/lb
carrots – $0.89
onion – $1.12
celery – $0.99
bell pepper – $0.90
oranges – $2.25/bag
Total – $14.10
