If SHTF you need protein to stay alive pretty much. Rabbits, hares and squirrels will be abundant and pretty easy to catch. The eating of rabbits and hares has a venerable history in Europe. Greeks, Germans, Spaniards and Britons love rabbits and hares, as do Italians in certain regions. Most of the recipes I will post here come from these traditions.
As for squirrels, these recipes are almost uniquely American. After all, squirrel-eating is as American as apple pie. In fact, the original chicken pot pie was actually a squirrel pie. Really. And it is wonderful. But on a serious note, start eating them now because if it hits the fans its pretty much all you will eat, especially if you are bugging out! See some yummy recipes below:
