This was a great dinner. I added more seasoning to the hens and cooked them a little longer than suggested. I added the garlic and onions to my mashed potatoes and mixed them with a mixer. They were absolutely delicious!

This was excellent. Our hens took another half hour to brown and get done, and instead of pureeing the pan drippings, onions and garlic I mixed them into the mashed potatoes as they were. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. No need to add milk to that.
