Why not switch it up this year with something different?
If your gathering is small a leg of lamb is perfect and is far less work than a turkey.
Grilling creates a nice crispy layer on the outside and really brings out the flavour.
Place a foil pan underneath the rotisserie to catch the drippings for gravy.
Anything goes on the side, potatoes, rice, squash ect.
Greek Style Grilled Lamb
- leg of lamb
- 1 head of garlic peeled and sliced
- olive oil
- lemon juice
Make slits in the lamb with a small knife and stuff the slices of garlic all over the lamb.
Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl and rub all over the lamb.
(if you have time you can marinate the lamb in the fridge for a few hours.)
Place lamb on the rotisserie and cook until done.
Let rest for 10 minutes before carving.
Slice and serve with gravy recipe below if desired.
In a saucepan heat the lamb drippings.
Add 1/2 cup of chicken stock.
Add 1 tsp each of rosemary, oregano and mint.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Bring to low boil. In a small jar mix 1/4 cup each of flour and water and shake until smooth.
Stir into boiling liquid to thicken to you liking.
