Small Game Recipes: Rabbit: Deep Fried Rabbit
  • Deep fat fryer
  • Mixing bowl
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 pinch of allspice
  • 1 egg separated
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • Cooking oil
  • 1 cottontail rabbit, cut into pieces

Combine the flour, baking soda, sugar and seasonings. Add the egg yolk and enough milk to make a thick batter. Beat the egg white until stiff and fold in. In a deep fat fryer, heat the oil to 350°F. Dip the rabbit pieces into the batter, letting the excess drip back into the bowl. Then carefully place the pieces into the oil, one at a time. Do this slowly to maintain the cooking temperature of the oil. Cook about 10 minutes, or until the pieces turn a rich golden-brown on the outside and the juices run clear.

Serve with mashed potatoes and peas.
