Cay Gregg was the wife of NH Governor Hugh Gregg and mother to NH Senator Judd Gregg. I met Cay shortly after I moved to Hollis. She always made time to sit with me and chat about my family and what I was up to. Cay was a lovely woman, and I feel privileged to have called her a friend. What a delight it was to discover some of her recipes in the pages of this cookbook. I will forever prepare my butterflied leg of lamb Cay’s way.
- I prepared this recipe using a 3 ½ pound butterflied leg of lamb and cut the marinade recipe in half to serve 4.
- To cook, I set my broiler on high and placed the lamb 5 inches below the flame/coil. I prefer my lamb a little pink and cooked “medium” rather than “well done”. I cooked the butterflied lamb for 10-15 minutes on each side. Test the temperature with an instant read thermometer. 145 degrees for medium.
- Let the lamb rest, covered with foil for 5 minutes before slicing.
- Serve with my mint vinaigrette if you like. I love it!
