Take 4 potatoes, boil, mash, season, add cream, mash some more, line 8" pieshell with them.
Boil six medium sized mice. Rats are ok if you know what they’ve been eating. No Buick upholstery or graveyards.

Season with salt, pepper, cayenne, add l cup blanched, chopped almonds, l cup cracker crumbs, l egg, (reserve l tsp for topping) making a burger. OPTIONAL: bell pepper, onions, cilantro, parsley, thyme, oregano, l can creamed corn, l can of those crunchy chinese things, water chestnuts, chopped olives, a dash of catsup or tomato sauce.
Fill the pie. Cover with more potatoes. Use egg/cream to wipe down pie so it toasts brownish in oven.
Remember, a rabbit is just a big rodent. The taste of the flesh is identical. Ask any concentration camp visitor.
TIP: when cooking rodents, pre-soaking up to 5 hours helps take away that pesky rodent flavor. AND the longer you cook it, with the other ingredients, the better the meat tastes.
