2 (2 pound) rabbits, dressed and deboned, bones reserved
1 tablespoon of mirepoix base
cup of all-purpose flour
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
2 carrots, diced
onion, chopped
1 leek, chopped
1 turnip, diced
2 medium potatoes - peeled and cubed
pound of smoked bacon, cubed
1 tablespoon of tomato puree
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
3 slices white bread
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Season rabbit bones with mirepoix base, and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish or similar. Roast for 30 minutes, or until browned and fragrant.

Remove rabbit bones to a saucepan and add enough water to cover by about 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium-high heat until the liquid is reduced by half to provide a stock for the recipe. This will take up to 30 minutes depending on the size of your pan.

Mix the flour, salt, and pepper. Coat rabbit pieces with the seasoned flour. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in the dish used to bake the rabbit bones. Cook rabbit pieces over medium-high heat, or in the oven, just until evenly browned on the outside.

Remove rabbit pieces, and add the carrots, onion, leek, turnip and potatoes. Add bacon, and if necessary, a little more oil. Place the rabbit pieces over the vegetables. Mix your homemade rabbit stock and tomato puree; pour into the baking dish.

Cover tightly with aluminum foil or a lid. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 F.
Bake the rabbit casserole for about 1 hour, or until rabbit is cooked through. Adjust the seasonings to taste.

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Trim the crusts from the bread slices, and slice in half diagonally or into cubes. Fry bread in oil until lightly browned.

Serve casserole in the pan, topped with fried bread (or croutons) and sprinkled with chopped parsley.
