    Remove string or netting from the roast and lay it fat-side down on a board. Cut an incision into the lamb along the length. Cut a second incision in the thickest part to even out the lamb. Press stuffing firmly in the incisions and over the surface of the lamb. Roll up the roast and tie firmly with kitchen string.

    Place the lamb, fat-side up, in a small baking dish; sprinkle with salt and pepper. (You can add potato wedges or your favourite side to the dish to roast while the lamb is cooking.) Roast 40 minutes or until browned and cooked to your liking. Cover with foil and stand for 10 minutes before carving.
