    1 teaspoon rosemary, crushed
in a mortar with a pestle
    1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning

1.  Preheat oven to 325.

2.  Place the leg of lamb in a roasting pan with a roasting rack.
2.  Use a long, thin knife to make deep cuts (only on the top) in
     the lamb, then insert garlic slivers into the cuts.

3.  Rub lamb roast with oil, pepper, rosemary and lemon pepper.

4.  Roast in preheated 325
oven 3 hours or until a meat     
     thermometer reaches 170-175
