Bacon Wrapped Cornish Game Hens in the Crockpot

This is so easy and was so yummy!

Bacon Wrapped Cornish Game Hens in the Crockpot


2 cornish game hens, thawed

1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp rosemary
4 cloves of garlic
6 slices of bacon


In a small bowl, mix your dry spices. Rub the spice mixture all over the birds, inside and out. Put 2 cloves of garlic each inside the cavities. Lower the birds into the
crockpot, breast side down. Take your strips of bacon, and wrap two one way and one the other on each bird. See if you can tuck an end inside of the cavity.

Cover the
crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5.

Discard the bacon before serving.

Why discard bacon??

You know that is a good question, and I often don't lol. It is the "standard" for recipes like this because it doesn't get crisp like it would if you fried it. It ends up kindof a fatty limp mess. :) If it appeals to you to eat it, go for it!
