This lamb is fabulous and is bursting with succulent flavors! It’s a great addition to your Easter celebration.
What You’ll Need:
1- 5 pound leg of lamb
2 Tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon fresh crushed pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed Bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon margarine
1/2 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon thyme

What to Do:
Preheat oven to 500°.
Place lamb on oiled baking sheet. Cut 1/4 inch gashes all around the lamb.
In a small mixing bowl, combine all the spices – pepper, bay leaf, margarine, sage, ginger, thyme and salt.
Rub olive oil all over the lamb and into the gashes. Sprinkle the spice blend into each gash along with one piece of garlic.
