1.00 tablespoon rustic rub; see * note 1
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
1.00 whole rabbit - (abt 1 1/2 to 2 lbs); cut into pieces
¼ cup creole mustard
¼ cup olive oil
1 salt; to taste
1 freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
1 smothered white beans; see * note 2
1 chow-chow sauce

* Note 2: See the "Smothered White Beans" recipe which is included in this collection.

In a mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs, herbs, Rustic Rub and cheese together. Mix thoroughly. Season the rabbit with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet. Rub each piece of rabbit with the mustard, covering each piece completely. Dredge the rabbit in the bread crumb mixture. When the oil is hot, pan-fry the rabbit pieces for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Remove from the oil and drain on a paper-lined plate. Season the rabbit with Rustic Rub. Ladle the Smothered White Beans in a shallow bowl. Lay the rabbit directly on top of the beans. Garnish with the chow-chow, fried spinach and cornbread sticks. This recipe yields 4 main-course servings.
