Mémé’s Lapin en papillote

Prepared with loving hands

The word papillote is related to papillon which means butterfly.  A bowtie is called noeud de papillon, meaning butterfly knot.  These are just little packets and don’t have to be done up with a special knot.

If you can’t get any rabbit, use chicken or fish instead.

Preheat the oven, medium hot (350° F).  Get ready a piece of foil (or parchment paper) for each person.  Place a portion of rabbit (or whatever) on the foil.  Smother it with mustard.  This would be French mustard — meaning Dijon mustard, not French’s mustard.  The heat is destroyed in the cooking process, so don’t be afraid to slather it on.  Chop up a leek or some onion.  Sprinkle on.  Same with some carrot shavings.  Add a nice sprig of thyme, some oregano and savory, salt and pepper.  Start to close up the packets, then drizzle on some cream, a spoonful or two.  Close them up well.  Bake ’til done, probably about 45 minutes to an hour (less for fish).


About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
