“Casey’s no name Hens”
Cornish Game Recipe, the BEST! It is called “Casey’s no name Hens”
Small bit of history here.
Over 25 years ago Nancy Baugh got an AWESOME recipe from her good friend named Casey. We liked Casey and her husband Walter a lot, just great folks. Casey gave
Nancy this recipe for game Cornish Game Hens
and it is wonderful!!
was pregnant with or second child, we could never agree on a name at all. The only
name I really liked was Casey. I just thought it was a great name for a girl.
But, Nancy said
that she could not do that because she said her best friend is named Casey, so
that name was taken.
The truth is our daughter was born and sitting on
Nancy’s lap in the
hospital without a name. So I said, “Casey is the only name I still like, what
do ya think?” Nancy
caved in and said yes, she would be a Casey. Sweetest girl ever! We love our
Turns out that 25 years later, my daughter Casey’s boyfriend is named Walter, just like the Casey and Walter of yesteryear. Pretty cool.
Here is the recipe for the best Cornish Game Hens you will ever have.
1\2 cup butter room temp
2 dry packs of onion soup mix
1\4 cup fresh chopped rosemary
1\4 cup brown sugar
1\4 cup walnuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 large sweet potato
2 apples cut
1 box wild rice
Mix the butter, rosemary and soup packet into a paste. Rub the mixture inside and out of the Hens. Coat a deep pan also with the butter rub. Add the chopped apples and sweet potatoes into the dish then place the Hens in the center
Save some of the butter mix for basting while the Hen is baking.
Then take the walnuts, cinnamon, brown sugar and sprinkle all over the hens and potatoes. Bake at 375 for one hour and baste with butter sauce while cooking.
Serve hen overtop of wild rice with apples and sweet potato mixture on the side.
Never had a Hen taste so good in my life.
Thank you Casey, Casey, and Nancy. GREAT recipe!
