I love rabbit and stuffing.



Cottontail rabbit with stuffing is great and adding diced fresh veggies and diced rabbit to the dressing makes it even better.

8 tbsp - butter
1/2 cup - diced onions
1/2 cup - diced celery
1/2 cup - diced wild mushrooms
2 boxes - Stove Top Chicken Stuffing Mix
2 to 3 cups - chicken broth
2 - rabbits, each cut into 6 pieces each
1/4 cup - cooking oil
1/2 cup - flour
1 tsp - seasoning salt



  • Trim off the belly meat and de-bone the rabbit's trunk (front ribs and backbone)
  • Dice up the trimmed meat and the rabbit's heart.
  • Mix the diced rabbit with the vegetables and cook in butter for 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl mix broth, vegetables, and diced rabbit with the stuffing mix.
  • Place the stuffing in a large casserole dish.
  • Preheat oven to 325°.
  • Mix the seasoned salt with the flour and coat the rabbit pieces.
  • Brown the floured rabbit in hot oil.
  • Place browned rabbit on paper towels to drain.
  • Lay rabbit on top of dressing and bake in 325° oven for 2 hours.

The grandkids took me out today. It was really good. The only regret I had was that I didn't take my recurve.

I tried this recipe, and it was awesome! This was only the third or fourth time I've ever had rabbit and I think I'll make a much larger effort next season to hunt them regularly.
