1 cooked rabbit, 125 g cooked ham, 1 cup dried breadcrumbs, 1 small onion, pinch thyme, 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, salt, pepper, 1 young marrow, 1 tablespoon melted butter, 1 teaspoon butter, 1 tablespoon flour, 150 ml milk, extra breadcrumbs.
Method: Remove meat from rabbit and cut into small dice, chop ham. Make thick white sauce by melting butter, adding flour and cooking 1 minute, then adding milk and stirring until thick and boiling. Boil 3 minutes. Grate onion, add meats, onion, breadcrumbs and seasonings to sauce and mix. Do not have it too moist. Season with salt and pepper. Peel marrow thinly. Cut slice off the top and scoop out seeds. Dust inside very lightly with salt. Fill with rabbit mixture. Fasten lid on with toothpicks. Brush marrow with melted butter. Roll carefully in dried breadcrumbs. Place in a well greased baking dish. Bake in a moderate oven about 45 minutes. Any cold meet may be used in this dish. Grated cheese may be added instead of ham and a little Worcestershire sauce if desired.
