5) In a roastin tin with the dripping, arrange the rabbit.

6) Roast for about about 60 minutes.

7) Turn down the oven temperature to 400F and continue to cook for 30 more minutes.


8) Serve the Roasted Rabbit on a large serving tray. Arrange roasted vegetables like potatoes, mushrooms and tomatoes around the edge of the tray.
