Ingredients

  • 2.2 kg easy-carve lamb leg (a leg of lamb that has been deboned. The joint is then tied back onto the bone)

  • 1 bulb garlic, skin on, halved horizontally
  • 6 sprigs rosemary

Method

    Roast for 20 minutes then turn down the heat to 190ºC, fan 170ºC, gas 5 and roast for a further 1½ hours. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before taking out the bone (as directed on pack instructions).

  3. 3

    Carve 150g lamb per person (cool the rest, wrap in clingfilm and store in the fridge for up to 48 hours to use in other meals).
