For an alternative to turkey, consider these delicious roast lamb recipes for your Christmas table centrepiece. We have stuffed roast leg of lamb, rack of lamb and more - which can all be served with the traditional Christmas trimmings.
I like to cook potatoes in the tin around the roast and make a gravy using the juices. The only other thing you need is some fresh veg for a fantastic Sunday lunch with the minimum of fuss.
A rack of lamb is seared, and covered with a mix of breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, garlic and rosemary before roasting. The result is succulent, perfectly roasted lamb. Try the same technique with beef or pork.
Prunes and currants tossed with salted, roasted almonds, creme de cassis and mint is the stuffing for my rolled lamb roast. It's a very easy way to dress up a lamb roast for Christmas or Easter. The simple herb rub adds just the right amount of seasoning along with fresh garlic inserted into the top of the roast. My balsamic basil fig sauce creation drizzled over the sliced lamb is the perfect finishing touch and extremely flavourful thanks to the fresh basil.
This leg of lamb is marinated overnight with fresh rosemary, garlic, mustard, honey and lemon zest. Be prepared for lots of requests for seconds!
A simple, but deliciously different take on the traditional roast lamb. A leg of lamb is brushed with honey, roasted and served with a honey and cider gravy. Enjoy with roasted potatoes.
