For many, the Holidays conjure images of succulent Beef Prime Rib, regal Pork Crown Roasts, or golden roasted Turkeys. These are all delicious, and certainly worthy of any celebration, but, for me, there is only one treat for a true Holiday celebration: Stuffed Leg of Lamb. Rich lamb flavor combined with savory stuffing and topped off with aromatic garnishes makes for a dish that can’t be beat. Try it at home with your loved ones this holiday season. I think you’ll love it. Cheers!
