1/2 pound loaf sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 8 cups)
2 Cornish game hens
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
pinch fresh ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces
2 cups canned tomatoes, drained and diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
6 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crumbled, or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary




Set the oven at 425 degrees. Put the bread cubes in the oven while it heats and toast them until golden brown, about 6 minutes.

Twist the wings of the Cornish hens behind their backs and tie the legs together. Put the hens, breast-side up, in a roasting pan. Coat the hens with 1 tablespoon of the oil: sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Dot with the butter. Roast the hens until just done, about 40 minutes

Meanwhile, oil a deep 1-quart baking dish. In a large bowl, toss the tomatoes with the garlic, parsley, rosemary, the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the toasted bread cubes and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and stir well to combine. Put the stuffing in a prepared baking dish and cover with a lid or aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove the cover; bake until the stuffing is crisp and golden brown, about 12 minutes longer.

When the hens are done, transfer them to a plate and leave to rest in a warm spot for about 10 minutes. Pour off the fat from the roasting pan and add any accumulated juices from the hens. Cut the hens in half and serve with the stuffing and the pan juices.


Wine Recommendation: This rustic, Italian-influenced recipe will go-nicely with an Italian red as a Chianti classico. It combines fruit flavors with the acidity to stand up to the strong ingredients here.

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
