NEWS PAGE THIRTEEN Roast Leg of Lamb Is Easter Tradition ,':; By GAYNOR MADDOX ^i' f\'EA Food and Markets Editor . with some American families 'it's baked ham for Easier dinner. ;sut the tradition of lamb is strong, •too. with many. - Today it is too expensive to j!«erve a quarter of baby spring •Jamb to a large family, but a "roast leg, handsomely garnished, "will delight the lamb-for-Easter families I' Here are helpful hints from one <of the most prominent home econ- •pmists in Chicago: • In roasting a leg of lamb, re'•move the thin paper-like fell cov- 1 eririg on the fat before placing the roast in the oven. Recent findings in test kitchens show that a better-looking, easier-to-carve roast results if the fell ts first removed. '' '^After cutting off this thin covering, place the roast fat side up on 'a rack in an open pan. As in the :' ; case of any roast, no water Is .added and the meat is cooked uncovered. Bake In a slow oven (350 .degrees F.) according to th« i schedule below or until » roast- •Tneat thermometer registers 175 "degrees F. for a well-done roast. ,'Lamb is never served rare. •'• Ah accent of garlic is a favorite in many homes. II' desired, i slash the fat covering on the leg of -Iamb the last 15 minutes of roast'. ing. Then cut a clove of garlic into slivers and Insert the garlic into the slashes in the roast. After completing the baking, remove the garlic before serving the meat. Toothpicks stuck in the slivers will make it easier to find and remove the garlic from the meat. : Leg of Lamb Roasting; Schedule I Three- to 5-pound roast, medt-1 um done — 35 minutes per pound, well done — 40 minutes per pound; 6- to 8-pound roast, medium done — 30 minutes per pound, well done — 35 minutes per pound. Here are two more ideas: You might do as the French do — shake a little nutmeg over the roast. It seems to improve the flavor without leaving any nutmeg taste. Some cooks baste the roasting lamb with French dressing — oil, vinegar, herbs and spices. Breakfast Special Broiled lamb chops on toast is an epicurean choice for breakfast. Remove membrane from kidneys and split them in half. Wrap a slice of bacon lengthwise around .each half and fasten with a wooden pick. Place on broiler rack about 2 inches from heat. Broil until bacon is brown on second side, for a total of approximately 10 minutes. Serve on hot buttered toast.
