Most people don't realize that the Germans were among the first to settle
	South Louisiana. The original settlement was in present day St. Charles
	Parish, west of New Orleans. The following was a favorite dish of the
	Germans in Louisiana. 
	6 Cornish game hens
	3 tsps Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce
	  salt to taste 
	2 tsps dry thyme
	  cracked black pepper to taste
	2 tsps dry basil
	3 tbsps chopped garlic
	  paprika for color
	4 tsps green peppercorns
	1 ounce dry white wine
	6 tsps Worcestershire sauce
	1/4 cup chopped parsley
	1/2 pound melted butter 
	Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Split cornish hens in two and remove
	back bone and wing tips. Season hens well on all sides using salt,
	pepper, and garlic.
	Using a sharp paring knife, cut small pockets in breasts and thighs of
	each hen. Insert green peppercorns in each pocket and place on baking
	sheet skin side up. Coat each bird well with Worcestershire, Louisiana
	Gold, melted butter, thyme, basil and paprika. Add additional salt and
	pepper if necessary. Pour excess butter and white wine in bottom of baking
	pan and place in oven. Bake for thirty minutes, basting occasionally with
	drippings. Hens will be cooked when legs separate easily from thighs.
	Remove from oven, place hens on serving platter and keep warm. Add chopped
	parsley to pan drippings, blend well into sauce and pour over Cornish hens.
