Steal The Show This Easter With Lidl Northern Ireland’s Sumptuous Seasonal Lamb Recipe

With the Easter holiday weekend just around the corner, there’s no time like the present to get prepared for family gatherings and an Easter Sunday feast to remember. Planning for school holidays and hunting for chocolate eggs can take priority, letting the preparations for the meal itself slip your mind, but don’t worry, as you can find everything you need to create a delicious Easter dinner in all Lidl stores across Northern Ireland. To help you create a showstopping centrepiece for your dining table this year, the retailer is inviting shoppers to prepare a delicious Easter lamb using its easy-to-follow seasonal lamb recipe.

Slow roasted lamb with garlicky greens

Time: 4 hours

Serves: 6 people


For the lamb

  • 1 Lidl boned and rolled lamb leg (£14.99)
  • 2 large onions
  • Handful of fresh thyme, leaves picked
  • Handful of fresh rosemary stalks
  • 4 cloves of garlic, cut in half lengthways
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 150C.
  • To prepare the leg of lamb, stab 8 holes across the surface using a small knife, fill the holes with half a garlic clove and a sprig of rosemary, making sure to press the garlic clove right down into the flesh of the lamb.
  • Season the meat with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  • Cover with tinfoil and roast in the oven for 3 and a half hours.
  • After 3 and a half hours, remove the tinfoil and increase the heat to 230C for a further 20 – 30 minutes to caramelise the meat.
  • To serve, carve the lamb and serve alongside potatoes and garlicky greens.

Although the lamb will be the star of the show on your dining table this Easter, having a selection of side dishes to accompany the lamb is what will make it a meal to remember. Whether you prefer classic Buttery Roast Potatoes (£3.99), Luxury Potato Gratin (£2.99) or like to have a selection of potatoes on your plate, Lidl Northern Ireland have a fantastic selection of pre-prepared side dishes available in-store this Easter. When it comes to selecting your vegetables, Lidl Northern Ireland’s Honey & Mustard Roast Parsnips (£3.99) are a must have on your plate and of course, no Sunday dinner would be complete without Sage & Onion Cornbread Stuffing (£3.49) and Deluxe Seasonal Gravy (£2.49).
