Rabbit Shoulder Wrapped in Bacon

What about a protein-rich and extra-meaty casserole for the holiday season? Just pan-cook lean rabbit meat with decadent pork fat and flavor them with onion, garlic, and olive oil. And because almost everything cooked with bacon gets even better, let’s wrap the whole thing in bacon strips and bake it to perfection. Did you forget the crunchy pistachios? Don’t!

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
