Oven Fried Rabbit

Rabbit, whether wild or domestic, is a great lean meat.  The entire body is dark meat and one rabbit can easily feed 4 people.

My favorite way to prepare rabbit is to “oven fry”.  It keeps the meat tender and has less breading than typical frying or deep frying.  I use a Dutch Oven but you could use a deep lidded casserole dish as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole rabbit cleaned and cut up into 5 pieces (2 back legs, 2 front legs, 1 back)
  • Buttermilk
  • Fine ground cornmeal
  • Lard or butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Preheat your oven 350F
  • Melt your lard/butter in the bottom of your Dutch Oven, about a tablespoon.
  • Coat each individual piece of rabbit in the buttermilk then the cornmeal and place in the Dutch Oven.
  • Put the lid on your Dutch Oven and place in the oven.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350.

Serve hot.

Until next time,
