  1. Preparation: If you are using a stuffing , prepare it ahead of time. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. A foil-lined baking pan makes for easier clean-up. Massage the Gravy Master over the skin of the Cornish hens (enhances color, but adds no calories or flavor). Melt orange marmalade , butter, and Worcestershire sauce in a micro-safe bowl in the microwave for about one minute. Stir until combined. You don't want it boiling hot. (Can be done stove-top, but do not overcook, only until melted to combine.) If you are using a stuffing , stuff the Cornish hens and place in baking pan. Baste half the glaze onto the skins of the Cornish hens . Bake uncovered about 1 hour. Halfway through baking time, baste with remaining glaze. Test with instant-read thermometer in center of stuffing . It should read 180 degrees F. Let rest 10 minutes before serving. Yield: 4 to 8 servings
