The lamb is tender, flavorful and the potatoes take on the flavor, cooking down to a wonderful creaminess.
To get a good leg of lamb a meat thermometer is invaluable. If possible, get the kind that has a probe into the meat with the display staying outside the oven.
A leg of lamb normally weighs 5 – 7 lb (2.5 – 3.5 kilo) To calculate the nutrition info for 6 servings I used 48oz, (1.5kg) which is a generous serving. There will be leftovers – see Recipe Index
