Leg of Lamb with Boozy Fruit & Mint

Leg of Lamb with Boozy Fruit & Mint

A butterflied leg of lamb is wonderful crowd pleaser, and we love it as the centerpiece of an Easter or Passover feast. Here we’ve made it a little sweet, adding brandy-soaked dried fruit to the stuffing. Ask your butcher to butterfly a leg of lamb for you. The meat will end up boneless and relatively flat. Though fairly simple to cook well, this dish leaves a lasting impression: When sliced, the spiral of stuffing nestled within the roll of sweet, tender spring lamb is an impressive show stopper.
