Ingredients:
4 Cornish Game Hens
2 lbs Sweet Potatoes
1 whole Eggland’s Best® egg
1/4 cup Basso® Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 oz Anchor® Butter
2 Shallots, chopped fine


1 inch fresh Ginger, grated
1/2 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
1/2 cup Pecans
1/2 tsp Thyme Leaves
Badia® Fresh Peppercorns
Badia® Sea Salt

Directions:
Peel sweet potatoes, cube and season. Toss in olive oil, cover with foil and roast in the oven until soft. Put in bowl and mash roughly. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Add grated ginger and chopped shallots; let sweat. Add thyme, then remove pan from heat and pour hot mixture over sweet potatoes and add the panko breadcrumbs, pecans and the beaten egg with a little sea salt and freshly ground peppercorns. Mix very well; taste and adjust seasoning.

Clean the game hens, then stuff with the sweet potato mixture. Tie the legs, place in a baking dish and roast the Cornish hens at 350°F in a convection oven for 45-50 minutes, or in a conventional oven at 400° or 425°F for
60-65 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes. Serve. Bon Appétit!
