I am (un)reliably informed by my mother that my granny used to rosst whole, stuffed rabbits.

Anyone here done this? How do you prepare it and with what do you stuff it?

I think sage and onion is traditional. I haven't done it, but I would have thought you might need to cover the chest/shoulders with foil to stop them from burning before the back-legs and saddle are done.

Yes lowlander i do quite often stuff with sage and onion, cover the whole stuffed rabbit after sewing up (to keep the stuffing in) with onion and bacon bits ,a little water in the roasting pan and a little lard. Cover with foil and roast slowly for up to two hours. Take off foil for last 10 mins. of cooking, to brown a little. Rest, and serve. Enjoy. Two or three glasses of Shiraz goes down well.

I often marinade a rabbit whole, stuff it, and then wrap it in foil to roast it. I think I posted the recipe for a spicy version of this recipe over on RC.

You don't need to post them they can be directly uploaded from your PC. They may need to be edited a little to make them the right size (email it to me if you wish).

It would not be allowed to scare people though.

I would make sure you have a young rabbit for roasting. In my experience older bunnies can be tough and benefit from slow cooking in stock or cider!.

I was shown to roast stuffed with Sage & onion sewn up then wrapped in Bacon to stop it drying out. Comes out real nice

Of interest perhaps.
Farmed rabbits are going 6.50, are wild rabbits still only being bought by dealers for a 1 each?

That is the going rate around here. Our local fishmongers had some today, 2.99 each or 4 for 10
