Need a new, interesting Easter Menu
« on: February 13, 2007, 12:00:04 PM »
My guests don't complain, but every year we have honey-baked ham and Williamsburg Queen's Cake. I'm bored.

Any suggestions?

My mom makes a fanTAStic leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary and we usually have asparagus, whipped/mashed potatos and ginger carrots.  Sooo yummy - let me know if you want recipes for any of it.

Lamb recipe, please- DH loves it and I have never really eaten it, so it would be a nice surprise.

Leg of Lamb

5-6 pound leg of lamb.
Cloves of garlic cut into slivers
Rosemary
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

Preheat oven to 375

Make small slits in lamb and fill with slivers of garlic - spaced out 1-2 inches
Rub lamb with rosemary and olive oil and then sprinkle with salt & pepper.

Place lamb on a rack in a roasting pan

Cook lamb for 45 min at 375

Drop the heat to 350 and cook for 2 1/2 hours.  Cover with foil after 1 hour 15 min.

ENJOY!

THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!

I proposed the idea to my Easter guests (it's the same crowd every year) and they were really enthused about the lamb idea.

That's what we're having. THANKS!!!

Great :-) I hope they enjoy it as much as we always do and the lamb/garlic/rosemary combination makes the house smell YUMMY as it's cooking.

Another leg o' lamb recipe:

Pour over leg of lamb in pan:
  2 cans of beef broth
  1 cup of Worcester sauce
  1 cup of cream sherry
  1 cup of teriyaki sauce
  1/2 cup of dark vermouth

Season with about 2 ts of each of these:
  Fresh ground pepper
  Sea salt
  Fresh ground rosemary

Roast lamb at 325 for 25 minutes per pound, basting occasionally.  Drain pan drippings and to make gravy, bring to a boil and add slowly about 6 tb of flour diluted with hot water and stirred with a fork to take out lumps.  Add flour mixture slowly until desired consistency.

I am doing Rack of Lamb, Balsamic Vinegar Asparagus, Funeral Potatoes, Spinach Strawberry Salad, Rolls, and for dessert, a Lemon Cake.  Can't wait!
