Roast for 45 to 60 minutes or until the juices run clear and the birds have reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees. If the stuffing starts to get too brown before the birds are cooked, cover just that part with aluminum foil. When done, cover the hens with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.

7

Slice the Brussels sprouts in half or quarters, depending on size, and toss with the olive oil, sumac and aleppo pepper. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roast in the same 375 degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until slightly tender and lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
