I tend to treat Cornish hens like mini-turkeys. With homemade cornbread
"stuffing" or simply have the cornbread "dressing" baked in a loaf pan
on the side. You wouldn't get a lot out of one in terms of "stock" but
you can definitely eat the entire thing. And have some nice side dishes
to go along with it.

When I say you can eat the entire thing I mean cornish hens aren't
scrawny as has been alleged. Lots of meat on those bones. The ones I
buy are enough for a couple of meals.

They're all tortured factory birds, so what does it matter? At the
very least, buy free range birds. Have a heart. Somewhere.
