Ed Baines serves up roast lamb with a difference, flavouring it with a tasty apricot and walnut stuffing


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 4.

2. Prepare the lamb by using a sharp knife to carefully open the fat away from the 'eye' but do not remove it.

3. In a bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, walnuts, dried apricots, sage, garlic and butter. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

4. Spoon the apricot mixture into the gap between the meat and the fat and then tie the lamb with string to hold the stuffing in place. Place in a roasting tray.

5. Roast the lamb for 30 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to rest in a warm place.

6. Slice and serve with baby carrots, broccoli florets, small roast potatoes and gravy, if you wish.
