Cornish Game Hens with Sage Stuffing
Passed to your plate by Nicole Desender
When my wife moved from Croatia to the United States in 2014, we realized that she had never had a Thanksgiving before. We always do Thanksgiving together with my family — I wanted to give her a preview though, so I decided to do a “Turkey Day” the week before with just the two of us. A whole turkey was pretty daunting for just two people, so I settled on a couple of Cornish game hens, bourbon maple sweet potatoes, roasted brussel sprouts, and of course, some Christmas ale. Lucky for me, she was impressed – enough so that having our own Turkey Day together has become a tradition.
