This is my second favorite Cornish hen recipe. I like crab meat stuffed in anything!

4 Cornish hens
1 lemon, cut in half
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 clove of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 stick butter
1 cup crab meat
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fine bread crumbs
1/3 cup half-and-half

Rinse the hens inside and out; pat dry. Rub with the lemon; sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Saute the garlic, parsley, green onions and celery in the butter in a skillet until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the crab meat, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the bread crumbs. Add the half-and-half gradually, stirring until mixed. Stuff the hens with this mixture and place in a greased baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until cooked through, basting frequently with pan juices.
