“A rabbet was considered but thought that would also affect structural integrity – more surface space for the glue, but nowhere really to screw in.”

That statement is very confusing to me. Inlaying the back of your choosing into a rabbet on all four sides is a very strong solution. Glue and brad nails (even countersunk screws if so inclined) will keep the backer in place; four screws into the wall and you’re done.

Unless I’m missing something in your description (a very real possibility).
