Tender and tasty, not to mention easy and fuss free. I had never cooked a whole rabbit before so I was a bit leery heding into this. Instead of olive oil I used bacon drippings, but otherwise made it according to the recipe. I think I would double the onion next time, just to have plenty to serve w/the meat. I served it for company and everyone said it was fantastic.


I've made it several times now, and it's a good recipe, classic and simple. Works with fresh or dried herbs. The only thing I adjusted was the time and temperature: I used a different baking dish. I left it to bake for 1-1/4 hour, covered for the last 30 minutes.

This was great my boyfriend really loved it. I would maybe add more cumin next time. I didn't lay it on a bed of onions since my boyfriend and I aren't big fans of onion but instead I used small white potatoes. They were quite tasty. All and all I would make this again. Also just remember the safe internal temp of a rabbit should be 160*F so I would use a meat thermometer and use hat as a reference for when it is done.
