I’ve never much cared for rabbits as pets, nor guinea pigs or fish. I like my pets to have a discernible personality, like cats and dogs. Almost everything else is food. Look at the personality on those rabbit legs!
Deep Fried Rabbit
6 farm raised, free range, preferably French, rabbit legs
Fresh thyme, chopped
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup bread crumbs
Peanut oil for deep frying
Season the legs with the salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme and paprika. Mix the flour and bread crumbs together, place in a paper or plastic bag, add the legs, 3 at a time, then shake to coat.
Heat the oil in a cast iron skillet until very hot, add the legs, 3 at a time, decrease the flame and fry until golden, tender and succulent.
