    Bergy's Note:

    Delicious either roasted or barbecued. Check internal temperature. You want it to be pink (160°F). Remember that it continues to cook a bit after you remove it from the cooking source Don't be shy with the garlic. Try serving a bit of Horseradish on the side as well as mint jelly. In the pictures I cooked a very small leg just large enough for 2 people.It was excellent

      This was delicious! I had a small butterflied leg of lamb, just 2 lbs., I set the oven to come on while I was at church and had a lovely roast leg of lamb when we came home. Thanks Bergy!

      managed to find a small butterflied leg of lamb, just enough for the two of us and this recipe was just perfect for it. The garlic and combination of herbs was soo delicious. Perfect for the BBQ (our indoor one), the crust was really amazing, lushious is the only word to describe it. I just bbq'd ours for 30 minutes with a lid on, we like ours a little rarer than medium. Turned out fork tender and we will be doing this one again, thanks for sharing a lushious dinner!! — May 12, 2005 UPDATE: Made this again for Suncay dinner, it dosen't get any better than this for lamb, sooo delicious, we will be making over and over again, thanks Bergy!!
