Recipe by Three-olive Martini
Another favorite from the grill makes a wonderful dinner for two. Relatively easy to grill and so full of flavor. Goes well with sides of green beans and a Yukon Gold baked potato. Delicious with a Pinot Noir.

- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1⁄8 cup unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon thyme

Directions See How It's Made
- Combine ingredients and mix until blended. Insert the ginger butter under the breast skin of each bird. Stuff birds (1 cup each) with a prepared stuffing mix of your choice and truss. Brush birds with olive oil, and salt, pepper and sage to taste. Place birds breast side up on a 350° grill for 25-30 minutes. Turn and continue grilling for 25-30 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink when cut at the bone and/or the temperature is 170° at the thickest part of the breast and thigh.
- Bon Appetite.
