Shoulder of Lamb Roast


Ingredients Directions
  • 1 boneless lamb shoulder
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and cut into slivers
  • 2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
  • 2 slices of bacon, chopped
  • grated rind of 1 orange
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp honey

1. Open the lamb shoulder and spread it flat, skin side down. Make small slits in the meat and insert garlic slivers.

2. In a large bowl, combine breadcrumbs, bacon, orange rind, egg, basil, and parsley. Spread lamb with stuffing. Roll meat up, tucking in any loose ends. Tie securely in several places with string.

3. On a rack in a roasting pan, roast shoulder in a 325° F. oven for about 1 hour, or until meat is just pink. During the last 15 minutes of roasting, brush lamb with orange juice combined with honey.

Serves 4 to 6.
