No Turkey : Thanksgiving

It’s Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving! And I am finishing up my Thanksgiving menu. No Turkey is key at our house. My hubby is allergic to Turkey and gives him a migraine. I am so glad Turkeys are Not on the menu….

Cornish Game Hen with Wild Rice :

  • 4 Cornish Game hens
  • 1/4 tsp of Salt and Pepper
  • 2 T butter divided
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 ribs celery , chopped
  • 1 can of condensed mushroom soup
  • 1 can mushroom steams
  • 1 package of fast cooking wild rice 
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cook rice according to package directions. In a small skillet, saute celery and onion in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Stir in the soup, mushrooms and prepared rice.
  2. Sprinkle inside and outside of hens with salt and pepper. Stuff with rice mixture. Place on a rack in a greased shallow roasting pan; cover with foil.
