      Title: Roasted game hens with new potatoes
 Categories: Poultry, Ceideburg 2
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      8    To 12 small (about 2-inch
           -diameter) thin skinned
           -potatoes, scrubbed
      2    Cornish game hens (1 1/4 to
           -1 1/2 lb. each)
      2 tb Dijon mustard
      2 tb Honey
    1/4 c  Dry white wine or apple
           -juice
      1 tb Minced fresh or 1 teaspoon
           -dry thyme leaves
           Salt and pepper
 
  Place potatoes in an 8- to 9-inch-square pan and set on a rack in
  upper half of a 425F oven.  Bake for 20 minutes.
  
  Meanwhile, with kitchen scissors or a knife, split hens in half,
  cutting along backbone and breastbone.  Rinse and pat dry.  Reserve
  neck and giblets for another use.  [Hardly!  They'd go right into the
  pan too... S.C.] Mix mustard, honey, wine and thyme.  Rub all over
  hens.
  
  Place hens, skin up, on a rack in a foil-lined 12- by 15-inch broiler
  pan.
  
  Set hens in bottom third of the oven.  Bake until potatoes are tender
  when pierced and meat is no longer pink at thigh bone (cut to test),
  25 to 30 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
  
  Serves 4.
  
  This is from the March '91 Sunset Magazine.  The article recommends
  accompanying this with hot or cold artichokes, apple pie and Sauvignon
  Blanc.
