Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).

In a skillet, melt butter and soften onion.

Remove from heat, let cool and add raisins, egg, bread crumbs, parsley and Medium Cheddar. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cut lamb roast lengthwise, not quite all the way through, so it opens like a book. Spread stuffing inside, close, and secure with kitchen twine or toothpicks. Place in an ovenproof dish and brush with melted butter.

Add beef broth and white grape juice. Roast 50 minutes. Serve sliced.


Canadian Swiss, Gouda or crumbled Feta all provide tasty and original alternatives.
