Nothing sets a holiday table like serving game hens or cornish hens to your guests. These small birds are perfect single-servings and make a great presentation. But these hens don't have to be cooked with a standard chicken recipe. Home Cuisine's Mae Pike shows a simple preparation with root vegetables.
Game Hens over Root Veggies
2 tablespoons Fresh Rosemary
2 teaspoons grated Myer Lemon peel
Thin slices of Myer Lemons
2 Cornish game hens
1 1/2 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 cloves minced Garlic
1 Peeled and cubed Sweet Potato
1 Large onion. Quartered
2 Carrots, peeled and cubed
4 Stalks of Celery, cut in chunks

Rub skin with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Toss prepared Veggies in Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper
Place Hens over Root Veggie mixture in Roasting Pan
