Wow this looks and sounds awesome. I am going to have to hunt down some lamb, for some reason it is not stocked in grocery stores around here.

This reminds me of a stand at the farmers market where we find pies of all different kinds, some Australian pies with lamb.

Claudia said...

What a grand idea. Beautiful! Now, I just ave to ensure that some lamb is leftover.... or just buy the chunks!

Tina said...

This is a tasty idea! Leg of lamb is a lot of meat for both the hubby and I so there is always leftovers. This is a gourmet way to take care of that, thanks Claudia. Keep these great entrees coming!

I don't know which sounds better - double crusted lamb or what you did with the leftovers - I'm sure I would really enjoy both of them.

This is a super pot pie. I usually make it with chicken but lamb is such a good idea.

Couldn't think of a nicer way to re-create another delicious dish with leftover leg of lamb. Unfortunately our leg of lamb was used up for a simple heated up version for next day leftover.
I will certainly keep this recipe in my file for next time we have lamb!

This would not last in our household--look at those gorgeous chunks of lamb. A perfect use for those leftovers!
