One of my favorites. "Bunny BBQ Sandwiches" Par boil and remove meat from bone. Simmer meat with your favorite BBQ sauce and saute'd onions until heated through. Serve on roll. Note; I typically only save the back and hind legs for the table. That is were most of the meat is. The rest is hawk food. You can do the same thing with squirrel.
When I was young my family had a farm and we raised meat rabbits for food and to sell to a butcher shop. As far as preparing, just pretend its chicken. Anything you can do with chicken you can do with rabbit. Yum-Yum gimme some.

This is what my friend brings me almost weekly in exchange for a special ham sub. It is very good. I haven't quite figured out why he would trade for some ham buried beneath a salad on a hoagie. Rabbit is also great with noddles.
Rabbit Spaghetti (time consuming but good) 1 rabbit 1 onion (I like onion so normally I look for a big one) 16 oz (2 cans) tomato paste .5 teasSSpoon garlic salt (somehow there always is a dab more) .5 teasSSpoon oregano .5 teasSSpoon sugar 2 bay leaves (optional - but they are great) Salt and pepper to your liking about 8 ounces of spaghetti.
1. Put the salted rabbit in boil water simmer till tender. Remove the meat and set the broth aside. 2. Remove the meat from the bones. 3. Add everything except the spaghetti to the broth, simmer for almost an hour. 4.Cook the spaghetti 5.Put the rabbit back into the reduced broth. SSSpoon out noddles and place atop.
Here in the UK, to me, as the season gets later the rabbit tastes better. Early on they taste like a soggy hay bail. Then the seem to have no taste at all (now) and go good with something else. Then later they get more body and can stand alone a little more.
I generally make a 'pie' with some sauce and a crust. I've got lots of reciepies but am to lazy to get the extra ingredients.
I'm going to try Jelly's next time as it's stuff I keep around the kitchen.
