Cornish Game Hens


This following recipe is super easy, elegant, and to us,  the Brecheisen Batch, it means a lot. How can a small little bird mean so much? Well, on the day that I was brave, enough, to attempt the bake a hen for the first time was the same day that Mr. B proposed!  So, this little hen is our special meal every year on the same date that Mr. B got down one on knee.

Surprisingly, it is really easy and simple to bake these little hens and turn out to be delicious! Not only are they easy to make, but look stunning on a plate.  In my mind, I had always imagined that it was much harder to get just right.  Afterall, it is only two ingredients. Yep, that is right, just two.

Bonus: It is free of the top eight allergens!
