1. Bacon Wrapped Rabbit Loin With Bacon Strawberry Dressing

Think there’s enough bacon in this recipe? The flavor is absolutely amazing. I think the strawberry bacon dressing is really my favorite part of this recipe, but it goes perfectly well with the flavor of rabbit, particularly if your rabbit is wild and a bit gamey.

6. Spanish Chorizo and Rabbit Stew

This stew has a spicy flair with picante chorizo sausages! You’ll also add cherry tomatoes, garlic, paprika, red pointed peppers, and chicken stock. Bonus points if you give yourself the nutritional benefits of homemade bone broth. Finish with parsley, olive oil, and lemon.

This Cajun-inspired slow cooker recipe uses rabbit, coconut oil or ghee, cabbage, chicken broth, onion, and dried basil. The simple ingredients really allow the natural flavors of the rabbit and veggies to shine through. Bonus points for using homemade bone broth!

8. Clay Pot Rabbit

Clay pots are a traditional way to cook food in many parts of the world, and they have such advantages when it comes to flavor and moisture. This rabbit is cooked with bacon, Vidalia onion, garlic, seasonings, and broth. The bacon helps infuse and richen the flavor of rabbit, since it’s very lean on its own.

9. Braised Wild Rabbit With Glazed Apples, Bacon, Shallots

This recipe is for a delicious full meal you can make in a single pot. The rabbit is seasoned with fresh thyme, rosemary, and bay leaves, and the flavors of the cinnamon apples with an apple juice glaze fantastically complement the smokiness of the bacon and savory flavor of the shallots.
