If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know that occasionally we like to share some of our favorite recipes. Despite popular belief, we can cook. We’re actually pretty daggone good at it, and we assume many of you are as well. Why? Because it just goes with hunting. We worked hard to get our meat, so by gosh we’re going to make sure it tastes good when we get to eat it.
Yesterday, we were able to get out with a friend of our’s beagles for a quality day of rabbit hunting. It was a gorgeous day to run the pups and we finished it with an awesome meal of rabbit meat. There’s nothing not to love about rabbit. It’s tender and delicious. There’s really not a lot of ways to make rabbit better…except put it on a stick, because, let’s face it…food is just better that way. So, here we present Bunny on a Stick for your enjoyment. It’s simple, quick, easy and delicious.
What You Need:
4 lbs Deboned abbit backs and legs cut into small cubes
4 Tbsp. Olive oil
5 Cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. Rosemary
3 Tbsp. Parmesan/Romano cheese
½ Cup All Purpose Flour
2 Eggs, well beaten
½ Cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Salt and Pepper
What You’ll Do:
1. Combine Olive Oil, Garlic, rosemary, and cheese in a bowl to make a marinade. Place rabbit cubes in marinade and refrigerate overnight.
2. Remove rabbit cubes from marinade and place on metal skewers.
3. Combine flour, salt, and pepper on large plate.
4. Roll skewers in flour mixture just enough to get a light coating, then dip in eggs, and roll in seasoned bread crumbs.
5. Heat 2 tbsp oil in frying pan and fry skewers until lightly browned
6. Place browned skewers in large roasting pan and place in preheated oven for 40 minutes
Your skewers are now ready to enjoy. For the ultimate meal try these with some hearty mashed potatoes and hearty ale or red wine.
