Sauteed to flavor baked rabbit

Baked rabbit with potatoes: the recipe and some advice

It is very common to serve your rabbit baked with potatoes. For a perfect single dish, I recommend adding about 800 g of potatoes to be cut into cubes to the ingredients and cook them in the same bowl as the meat. Or, you can prepare your baked potatoes separately.

Instead of the Mediterranean aromas that we have chosen (rosemary, bay leaf and thyme) you can also choose more particular flavors such as coriander: it all depends on your tastes.

Keep it in the fridge for a day in an airtight container. Preservation is therefore possible, but strongly discouraged: the next day the consistency of the meat will no longer be the same.
