The combination of herbs brings out the great flavor of lamb I had a small leg of lamb (just big enough for two) and used dried herbs rubbed them into the lamb well, it was delicious.Measurements for dried herbs for full recipe - apprx- 1/4 cup parsley, 1/3 tsp rosemary, 1/3 tsp thyme Served with stir fried Jeruselam Artichokes with onions, roasted potatoes and small side salad Thanks Dancer for another keeper

This was my first leg of lamb to ever cook. We cannot buy lamb where I live so have to bring it in. This recipe was fantastic and my dad said it was a keeper and when he says something is a keeper it really is. Was tender and juicy enough that I could eat it, even with my band. Thanks for a great recipe.

I had guests for Christmas dinner early and they wanted lamb, so lamb it was, and I sure am glad I chose this recipe! This roast made my dinner one of the best I have served in a long time! We would give it lots more stars if we could!!! Tender, juicy, most flavorful and perfectly cooked. Stupendous!!! Thanks Dancer!
