Switch it Up

Thanksgiving weekend will see many tables filled with the traditional turkey and ham.
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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Greek Style Grilled Lamb
  • leg of lamb
  • 1 head of garlic peeled and sliced
  • olive oil
  • oregano
  • lemon juice
  • pepper  

 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.

Wine Suggestion: Shiraz
