Bread and Rabbit Casserole

SaludNapa's picture
This recipe is also called "quick bread" because there is no yeast and therefore no need to proof and knead this remarkably versatile dough. I have used this recipe for preparing savory dishes such as chicken and dumplings. I've also created sweet concoctions by adding the dough to dried apricots and prunes over fresh peaches. I stole the quick bread recipe from James Beard and have been using it since the early eighties. The addition of lemon zest and rosemary go great with poultry. The dough is particularly wonderful over leftover roasts and even roasted fall vegetables like butternut squash and mushrooms. Please let me know how you can use this quick bread recipe.
