Stuffed Cornish Game Hens (Gluten-Free)

Cornish game hens stuffed offer a delicious, gourmet alternative to holiday turkey. They are easy to prepare, and a delight for guests to see on the plate. Garnish with a splash of fresh cranberry sauce, and serve with Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, or oven roasted vegetables, and you've got yourself the makings of a holiday feast.

Many butchers carry fresh game hens, especially at this time of year, so go out of your way to find some. If you have a choice, organic free-range hens are best. If you must use frozen, or packaged game hens, make sure that any additives use to treat them do not include gluten.

This recipe makes four hens, which can serve up to six people, but I like to make one per person whenever possible.

Ingredients:
4 Cornish game hens, fresh
1 cup melted butter
1 large onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons basil, fresh, chopped fine
1 tablespoon thyme, fresh, chopped fine
1 teaspoon oregano, fresh chopped fine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
¼ cup melted butter

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

In a medium bowl combine the ½ cup melted butter, onion, celery, mushrooms, garlic, basil, oregano, thyme and parsley.

Season hens inside and out with salt and pepper, then stuff with buttered vegetables. Place stuffed birds in a 9x13 inch baking dish, breast side up.

Baste with ¼ cup melted butter.

Cover dish and bake 325 degrees F for 1½ hours.

Remove cover and brown birds for a minute or two under a broiler at 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).

Note: These hens are also delicious when stuffed with Celiac.com's Best Gluten-free Stuffing. Just wash the bird, season with salt and pepper, stuff each bird, baste with butter and bake as above.

I wish! I got the flu this winter as well as a couple of colds. I do have 3 lids, the youngest in preschool, so there's always a lot of germs around. Lol

Hey again ? It's a start, but I so wish they'd done the whole panel. Some of us, myself included, test negative to the TTG-IgA. I was positive on the DGP only. I wonder if your insurance will only cover those 2? Regardless, get them done as soon as you can! Do you have a walk in lab where you live? If so, go tomorrow. Then you'll be a step closer to getting answers. Good luck and keep us posted!

I totally agree...this board is awesome! The people on here have been there for me through everything and it has helped so much! I don't think antihistamines would affect the test at all. I take an antihistamine daily as well for horrendous allergies.

glutenfreegirlfriend, I hope you are still following this thread. The vomiting bile and unintended weight loss can be a sign of bile reflux. Here is a NYtimes article on it. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html here is thread about it. Getting completely over bile reflux can be difficult. I hope he finds something that works for him. ***this is not medical advice. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy,

Nope. I got the flu and a cold within a two month span at the end of winter. However, I was battle a tooth infection during that same time period.
