Breast of lamb is a cheap cut that is packed full of flavour, it is even better when cooked in a wood fired oven where the level of gnarliness increases to the maximum!! Always buy the best quality lamb you can get, this one I bought from the Brace of Butchers, local produce and at a great price of only £3.50, they will even trim it for you..!
I like good old fashioned sage & onion stuffing with my lamb and it is really easy to make.
4 slices of brown bread (crusts removed)
Half an onion (or one small onion)
Bunch of washed fresh sage
Lemon zest from 1 lemon
Salt & lots of pepper
Roughly chop the onion & fry in a little olive oil until soft, but not brown, then leave to cool
Add all the ingredients into a blender and zap until you have a fine breadcrumb mix
Season to taste
Lay the breast flat and spread the stuffing all over.
Firmly roll the breast up trying to avoid squeezing out the stuffing
Tie with string and its ready to cook!
I heated the wood oven to 250c and let the flames die down (conventional oven heat to 160c/gas mark 4) and you will need to cook the breast for around two hours.
When cooked slice into generous size portions, serve with roasted potatoes and vegetables!
