(I hoped to post this collection of recipes for slow cooker lamb over the weekend for people who were thinking about Easter menus, but it was delayed due to me being seriously under the weather! Thanks for all the get-well wishes everyone, and I am glad to be feeling a bit better!)
I'm intrigued by the idea of cooking leg of lamb in the slow cooker, and the more I thought about it, the more it made sense, since lamb is great cooked at low temperatures in the oven. I realize the strong flavor of lamb isn't for everyone, but I love, love, love lamb, and so do a couple of my favorite food bloggers who each have a couple of different variations of slow cooker lamb. For this Classic Collection I'm sharing some ideas for Slow Cooker Lamb that might be good for an Easter menu, but if you're not having lamb for Easter I think these would taste great any time of year.
In the top photo above is Slow Cooked Leg of Lamb with Garlic, Lemon, and Rosemary from Dinner with Julie. Julie serves the lamb with Lemon Potatoes with Garlic and Oregano (recipe included) made from gorgeous Yukon Gold potatoes.
