I deboned my cornish hens from the back (find the technique on youtube or maybe even here). I used dried cranberries, toasted pine nuts, wild rice (cooked on the side) onions and sliced button mushrooms for my stuffing (Sweat the onions in butter and then add the other stuff and then let it cool). Stuffed the birds and trussed them and bake them as above recipe. I also roasted the bones with onions, celery and carrots added chicken broth and water let it simmer and I added some cornstarch and tomato paste, strained it and adjusted seasoning (the sauce). I served it with braised fennel and potatoes baked in a mixture of beef and chicken broth basted with butter. If anyone needs exact recipes let me know.
