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.

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).    

Ingredients

  • Leg of LambSPP_2310
  • Rosemary
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Lamb Gravy
  • Mint Jelly (different to Mint Sauce)
  • M&S Roast Potatoes
  • M&S Mash (because we are different people)

 Method

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.
