Mini Scotch Lamb Leg

Mini Scotch Lamb Leg

Serves: 2 or 3


  • 350-400 g piece of lamb leg, boned and rolled

  • a little olive oil

  • salt and pepper

  • 2 medium sized floury potatoes (Maris Piper or King Edward) peeled and cut into 2cm cubes

  • 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2cm cubes

  • 200g celeriac, peeled and cut into 2cm cubes

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 sprigs rosemary, leaves separated and roughly chopped

  • salt and pepper

Cooking Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C /180C fan / gas 6.
  2. Place the lamb joint into a roasting tin large enough to accommodate it and all the veg in a single layer. Rub the lamb with a little oil and season. Put it into the oven for 10 minutes while preparing the vegetables.
  3. Bring a pan of water to the boil, drop in the vegetables, return to the boil and cook for 4 minutes then drain well. Transfer to a bowl and tumble the vegetables with the oil, rosemary, salt and pepper.
  4. Scatter the vegetables into the tin around the lamb and return to the oven. Reduce the temperature to 180C / 160C fan / gas 4 and continue to cook for about 35 minutes, turning the vegetable cubes so that they brown, from time to time, until the meat is a rich golden brown and the cubes are crisp. If the meat is ready before the vegetables, transfer the meat to a warm serving dish, cover and allow to rest, and cook the veg for 10 minutes more with the oven temperature boosted again.

Serve with additional green vegetables, e.g. French beans or broccoli if you like.
