  • Rabbit Pot Pie

This rabbit pot pie recipe is a great way to use up your leftover rabbit meat, or roast a rascally rabbit like Mrs. McGregor did (in Peter Rabbit). Nothing is quite as comforting as serving up (or being served) a pot pie for supper on a cold fall or winter evening, and made with rabbit meat, it’s an extra-special treat. Hazelnuts are a delicious accompaniment to rabbit, but if you can’t find hazelnut meal where you are, just omit it and use 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour — it will be just as delicious. Serve with a green salad tossed in a mustardy vinaigrette.
