1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 cups soft breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons grated orange rind
1 egg, beaten
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
1 (5- to 6-pound) boneless leg of lamb roast
1 cup Chablis or other dry white wine
2/3 cup orange juice
Orange slices (optional)
Fresh mint leaves (optional)

Preparation

Sauté onion in butter in a medium skillet until tender; add breadcrumbs, chopped mint, orange rind, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, stirring well. Set aside.

Spoon breadcrumb mixture into the opening formed by boning. Fold roast over breadcrumb mixture; tie securely with string. Place roast in a roasting pan. Sprinkle roast with remaining salt and pepper. Insert meat thermometer, if desired.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes. Combine wine and orange juice; pour over roast. Bake for 1 1/2 hours.

Score fat in a diamond design; coat with glaze. Bake until desired degree of doneness: 15 minutes or 140° (rare); 35 minutes or 160° (medium); 1 hour or 170° (well done).

Transfer roast to a warm serving platter; let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Skim fat from pan drippings. Discard fat, and pour pan drippings over roast. Garnish with orange slices and mint leaves, if desired.
