Cornish hen casserole

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N Cornish hens
⅓ cup Butter or margarine
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Onion or garlic salt
¼ teaspoon Black pepper
4 tablespoons Parsley; chopped
1 cup White wine
3 \N Firm tomatoes; peeled, diced
6 \N Green onions; chopped
1 cup Sour cream

Select medium sized birds weighing about 1-½ pounds each. If frozen, thaw. Remove giblets; boil until tender. Mix soft butter with seasonings; spread birds with the mixture. Mash the cooked livers with parsley; place a generous spoonful in the cavity of each bird. Place birds in a shallow casserole; roast in a hot oven, 400 degrees for 35 minutes, pouring white wine over the birds. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue cooking until tender, about 30 to 35 minutes. Baste once or twice with juice in the pan.

Add tomatoes and green onions; cook 10 minutes. Just before serving, blend sour cream into pan gravy and heat through. Serve at once, one bird per person. Serves 4.
