A whole leg of lamb is a glorious thing. This one has loads of flavor infused throughout the meat with very little effort. You’ll start by stuffing sliced garlic all over the lamb, then storing it in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes (and up to 24 hours) before roasting for the tastiest results. This allows the garlic to thoroughly permeate the meat. When you’re ready to roast, place the lamb on a layer of lemon slices and rosemary sprigs to allow those flavors to infuse the meat while it cooks, too. The lamb takes less than 2 hours to roast, making this a relatively quick and easy main dish for such showstopping results. Get the recipe:Rosemary, Lemon, and Garlic Leg of Lamb
