First: Easter Roast Together

Well I say Easter roast, as we cook quite a bit at home already we decided to treat ourselves to an M&S Easter. We basically have cheated and it feels great! 

Here’s how it turned out. 


The Menu 


Leftover Chicken Liver Pate and Toast– Served with Sparkling Rose Grape 



Lashings of luxurious lazy Lamb Roast with all of the trimmings 


The Ultimate Easter Egg  



SPP_2334Our Easter roast was beautiful, Jon consulted the “all-knowing papa” of his and yet again he provided phenomenal advice. The lamb was incredible and the M&S veggies complimented it very well.  Not only did the food taste lovely but there was barely any washing up and the overall experience was stress free. If you can, I would highly recommend this way of doing a holiday dinner, it allows you to enjoy your day. You are not worried about timings or peeling potatoes, and you can relax to a bit of jazz whilst overlooking your garden and sipping tea, or maybe even arrange some flowers… What a perfect day!

Oh and did I mention that you have enough for tomorrows dinner too. 😉 Graceless approved.

PS. I tried the mint jelly and I must say I do prefer it over mint sauce (which was sacred in our house, do not tell my mother).    


  • Leg of LambSPP_2310
  • Rosemary
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Lamb Gravy
  • Mint Jelly (different to Mint Sauce)

I have only given the instructions for the lamb as everything else comes with instructions…

  1. Preheat the oven 200°C.
  2. Rub the lamb in olive oil and sprinkle it with salt, pepper and rosemary.
  3. Let the lamb rest for 30 mins.
  4. 200°C for 20 minutes and then 15 minutes per lb at 180°C.
  5. Remove from oven and let the lamb rest for 20 minutes before eating.
  6. Try and not eat it all before it reaches your plate.
