  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Season the lamb leg to taste with salt and pepper. Place into a metal roasting dish, and drape with the bacon slices. Roast the lamb in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until the desired doneness, turning once.
  3. Combine the breadcrumbs, green onions, garlic, and parsley in a small bowl. Sprinkle into the roasting dish over the meat drippings, then return the dish to the oven, and continue baking until the breadcrumbs have toasted to a golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the baking dish from the oven; set the lamb leg onto a plate, and cover with aluminum foil. Allow the lamb to rest in a warm spot for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place the baking dish onto a burner on the stove over medium-high heat. Pour in the wine and beef stock, and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook for 5 minutes. Slice the lamb leg, and serve with the wine gravy.

This recipe is truly amazing! Several of the calculations are REALLY off. First of all, a 5 pound lamb serves a lot more than 4 people, unless you're feeding sumo wrestlers. Second of all, like ...

I love gravy. When I used this recipe I replaced the wine with 1/2 cup of red wine. Parsley became optional. Then to thicken I used a little Veloutine (Instant Thickener).

I loved this recipe! The gravy was weird because I've not made my gravy that way before but it was good! I used red wine instead of white and I thought the entire thing was amazing. I also sp...
