Let's Make It
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the potatoes and garlic cloves in a large shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. of the olive oil, and toss to coat. Bake for 30 minutes.
While the potatoes and garlic are roasting, combine the bacon and 2 Tbsp. of the oil in a large skillet, and place over low heat. Cook just until the bacon begins to wilt. Then remove the bacon with a slotted spoon, and set it aside. Saute the rabbit, in batches if necessary, in the skillet, setting the pieces aside as they are browned. Reserve 2 Tbsp. of the pan drippings.
Remove the roasting pan from the oven, and reduce the heat to 350°F. Add the rabbit, rosemary, pepper, coarse salt, reserved pan drippings, and remaining 3 Tbsp. oil to the roasting pan with the potatoes and garlic. Toss thoroughly, and return the pan to the oven. Bake for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle the reserved bacon over the top, and bake until the meat is tender and the vegetables are golden, another 20 min.
