Lamb Surprise
(Ami Kleftiko)
What You Need:
  • One 4-pound boneless leg of lamb or 8 shoulder lamb chops
  • 8 slivers garlic
  • Eight 1-inch cubes feta or kasseri cheese
  • 8 small carrots, cut in half
  • 8 small white onions
  • 8 small stalks celery, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 8 small potatoes, peeled, halved, and buttered with 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried mint

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

    2. If using leg of lamb, cut meat into eight 4- to 5-inch serving pieces. Make incisions in meat and insert slivers of garlic.

    3. Place each piece of meat on a large square of heavy-duty aluminum foil.

    4. Add 1 cube of cheese, and distribute the vegetables evenly among the eight packets. Add a few drops of lemon juice, salt, pepper, oregano, and mint.

    5. Fold the foil in double fold at top and seal like a package. Arrange packages close together in a baking pan and bake 1˝ to 2 hours.

    6. Serve each foil package, sealed, on dinner plate and let each guest open his own.

        Other vegetables can be used, such as 4 small zucchini, cut up; 4 ripe tomatoes, quartered; 4 green peppers, cut into eighths; 2 medium eggplants, peeled and cubed; 8 frozen artichoke hearts, thawed; or 8 whole mushrooms.
