Ingredients

  • 1 boneless leg of lamb (4 to 5 pounds)
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs (about 2 slices)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon herbes de Provence
  • Dash salt and pepper
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 2-1/2 pounds medium potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 large tart apple, sliced

Directions

Place leg of lamb on a rack in a roasting pan. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, butter and seasonings; spread over meat. Place onion in pan; pour broth over onion. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 1 hour.
Add potatoes; bake 30 minutes longer. Add apple; bake 30 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender and meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
Remove vegetables and apple and keep warm. Let roast stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Yield: 10 servings.
Editor's Note: Look for herbes de Provence in the spice aisle.

"We eat a lot of lamb in our household, so I thought I would try a different recipe. The breading is pretty dry and has very little taste to it. I would prefer just salt, pepper and a little rosemary on my roast."
