Leg of Lamb
I love lamb and it is so easy to make.
One five-pound leg of lamb
8 cloves of garlic
One teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
One tablespoon butter
3 sliced potatoes
Wash and dry the lamb
Poke 8 holes in the roast just deep enough to fit a clove of garlic
Season with the salt, pepper, butter and rosemary
Place in a roasting pan
Place your meat thermometer in the roast
Add the sliced potatoes around the roast
Turn the potatoes once to get all the brown from the roast on them
Bake at 350 degrees till the meat thermometer reads medium
This tales about 1 1/2 to 2 hours
Serve with green beans, rice pilaf, humus, pita bread, tomato and onion salad with feta cheese and olives.
I also like mint jelly with lamb.
