DIRECTIONS

  • Remove legs from body of dressed rabbit or squirrel.
  • Split the body down the back through the breast.
  • Cut each half in two crosswise.
  • Dip meat pieces in melted butter.
  • Roll pieces into crushed corn flakes coating all around.
  • Brown meat in hot oil on each side.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 1 hour.
  • Note: Some people like to soak the meat in salted water a few hours before cooking.
  • If so cover the body with water in a pot and add 3 Tablespoons of salt.
  • Then drain, rinse, and pat the body dry before cooking.
  • I often do this especially if the animal appears to be old.
