    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon Italian herbs
    • 1 teaspoon plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr20min  ›  Extra time:10min resting  ›  Ready in:1hr45min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
    2. Blend the herbs, flour and spices together in a large bowl.
    3. Add the lamb mince and knead until all the herbs and spices are mixed into the lamb mince.
    4. Take the mixture and roll into a ball, then roll on a cutting board into a roly-poly type shape.
    5. Bake on a rack or grill in the oven for 1 hour 20 minutes.
    6. Take out of the oven or the grill and cover in tin foil. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.
    7. Once rested, cut and serve.


    I tend to find that cutting is best done with an electric knife to get thin slices.

    Serving suggestion

    Serve with salad and chips or wedges.
