My dad is an avid hunter, and here is his recipe for fried rabbit. It's delicious! Tastes like chicken, only better :) You can use this recipe for any wild game such as squirrel, pheasant, quail, partridge etc. Great for frogs legs too LOL

I followed the directions exactly, and came up with dry meat and bland breading. If I were to try this again I would not boil nearly as long, and add many spices, which I would rub onto the boiled rabbit before dipping into egg. I think using my favorite fried chicken recipe is the easier way to go. But it is GREAT to see rabbit recipes when many cook books do not have them.
