DIRECTIONS

  • In a 9-by-13-inch baking pan, stir together oil, thyme, savory, and bay leaves.
  • Add rabbit and turn to coat evenly.
  • Cover and chill at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a bowl, stir mustard and water until smooth.
  • Turn rabbit over, then spread top of meat with half of mustard mixture.
  • Bake, uncovered, in a 375°F oven for 20 minutes.
  • Turn meat over and spread other side with remaining mustard mixture.
  • Continue to bake, basting once or twice, until meat is no longer pink in thickest part (cut to test), 25 to 30 minutes more.
  • Place rabbit on a platter and keep warm. Place pan over medium-high heat and boil, stirring, until juices are reduced to 1/2 cup, about 8 minutes.
  • Add half and half, whisk until bubbling.
  • Add all but 2 tablespoons cheese and whisk until melted.
