Greek lamb baked in paper


2 oz feta or kasseri (or more)
1 leg of lamb *
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano
2 lemons, juice only
pepper to taste
1 tsp mint flakes

1 tbsp salt
2 garlic cloves

How to prepare

Wipe meat with damp cloth. Make incisions with small sharp knife on all sides of leg or shanks. Insert pieces of garlic clove and cheese. Rub with lemon juice. Sprinkle with herbs, salt and pepper. Wrap securely in heavy paper twice. Use grease proof paper such as cooking parchment or oil brown paper. (do not use aluminum foil. It prevents browning.) Tie with string. Bake a leg for 2 1/2 hours in 350 f oven. Bake 2 hours if using shanks. *note: lamb shanks may be substituted for leg of lamb.
