Cajun Baked Rabbit - January 2011

For a large roaster rabbit.

Leave the rabbit whole. Season well with salt and black pepper.

Stuff the cavity of the rabbit with large chunks of onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic.

Then, wrap slices of bacon around the rabbit and secure with toothpicks.

Pour a small amount (1 – 2 Tbsp) of vegetable oil in a roasting pan. Place the rabbit in the roasting pan and add about a ¼ cup of water.

Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 2 – 3 hours or until tender.

Remove cover for last ½ hour of baking time to allow rabbit to brown.
