Baked Lamb 's Head
|Lamb heads||1 , cleaned and split in half lengthwise|
|Potatoes||4 Large, quartered|
|Butter||1⁄2 Pound, melted|
|Garlic||3 Clove (15 gm), finely chopped|
|Chopped fresh parsley||2 Teaspoon|
|Fresh bread crumbs||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
Put the lamb's-head halves cut side up in a buttered shallow ovenproof dish.
Arrange the potatoes around the head, season with salt and pepper, and pour the melted butter over the meat and potatoes.
Bake in a preheated 400° F. [200° C] oven for about two hours, or until the meat is tender and well browned, basting it every 20 minutes with the cooking juices or more melted butter, if necessary.
Mix the garlic, parsley and bread crumbs, and sprinkle the head with the mixture.
Bake the head for a further 10 to 15 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown, basting the meat and potatoes at least once.
