Lamb hates me! I have never been successful with chops, legs, whatever... That said, this recipe sounds easy enough that perhaps I might just be able to turn our something edible for once, karlyn! My sincere thanks and my ^5. I'll let you know ho...morelacrenshaw in Horsham loved it
This sounds just like my grandmother's recipe. She was a "mother's helper" before she got married and made leg of lamb like this every week.morninlite in Kalamazoo loved it
