Cheesy Broccoli Rabbit Bake

This Cheesy Broccoli Rabbit Bake is so easy and delicious! It is perfect for weeknight meals on the go.

Do you have rabbit or any small game sitting in the freezer? Do you not know what to do with it? Or are you busy with soccer practice, extracurricular activities, work…? Besides the addition of a few ingredients after 4 hours, this recipe is leave it and forget it.

The rabbit slow cooks for 4 hours and becomes tender and shreddable. Once the tenderness has been achieved, with a few more ingredients and 4 more hours of cooking, you will have a delicious meal the entire family will love.

This recipe came about by my desire for broccoli and rice. What’s more American than a casserole? I decided the perfect meat to accompany this dish would be my first rabbit I’ve eaten ever. And boy was I right! There is no person that will dislike this meal. It is simple and delicious yet full of flavor. I hope y’all gobble it up like my family did.
