This year, I cooked for a crowd on Thanksgiving. However, it’s just been me and a friend, or me and the boys in past years. Same with Christmas.
Cooking for two or three is vastly different from cooking for a crowd, and in previous years, I’ve had enough turkey left from holiday meals to feed malnourished children in third world countries for a week. It’s hard to use that many leftovers.
Recently, I was shopping the frozen foods aisle at Brookshire’s, and I saw Tyson Premium Cornish Hens.
They are the PERFECT size for a festive meal for a small group, and they can be used just like you would a turkey or roast chicken. Hens are also flavorful and juicy with very little preparation required.
The Tyson twin-pack of Cornish hens is 100 percent natural with no hormones or artificial ingredients. Each Cornish hen is individually bagged to protect the product from frost or freezer burn.
Tyson recommends seasoning them with salt and pepper, and basting with butter while they roast for about an hour. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
You can serve them like turkey with dressing on the side, and make an impressive main dish for someone special this holiday season.
