In honor of our first annual Halloween Bash on Nov. 2nd, we are sharing a week-long film food series highlighting spooky recipes that are inspired by our favorite Halloween movies.
Remember when we all fell for this story and how we all thought that this was “found footage” from a group of amateur filmmakers?? We do! Today, we highlight 1999’s chilling horror film The Blair Witch Project. To keep it themed this recipe was inspired by the known neighbors of the woods…rabbit! We introduce the HARE Witch Project!
Synopsis: Three film students travel to Maryland to make a student film about a local urban legend… The Blair Witch. The three went into the woods on a two day hike to find the Blair Witch, and never came back. One year later, the student’s film and video was found in the woods. The footage was compiled and made into a movie. The Blair Witch Project.
HARE Witch Project Recipe:
– 1 full rabbit
-6 clove garlic
– Juice 1 lemon
-1/3 cup dried rosemary leaves
– 3/4 cup garlic infused olive oil
– 8-10 small potatoes
-1 tbl butter
-1/2 cup of white wine
-Sweet Spanish Paprika
Season the rabbit with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Chop three cloves of garlic into larger pieces and mix with the lemon juice, half of the rosemary and half of the garlic olive oil. Pour onto the rabbit blending marinade thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place potatoes in a separate bowl. Add garlic olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and rosemary. Toss the potatoes so that they are coated and won’t stick to the pan. Place the rabbit in a roasting pan and pour on the marinade. Cut remaining garlic cloves into fours and stuff the rabbit with the garlic pieces. Cut the butter in half and place it on the two ends of the rabbit for a browning effect. Add the wine to the pan. Place the seasoned potatoes and an onion (which should be cute in quarters) around the rabbit and sprinkle a dash of lemon juice. Cover the rabbit with a piece of foil.
Roast for 25 minutes then remove the foil. Roast for another 25 minutes, or until tender and lightly browned. Enjoy your Hare Witch project.
