Leftover lamb recipes--help

I have some leftover leg of lamb and I need some new ideas on what to do with it. I usually end up making a shepard's pie, some kind of curry or a baked ziti with tomatoes, feta, etc.

Any other ideas? Please??

  1. Mirage brought this soup to a potluck a few months ago and it was incredible.

    1. Make some lamb gyros using tzatiki (sp?) sauce and warm pitas. I get lazy and purchase the sauce at my favorite Greek resto, but I am sure you can find a recipe.

      1. My vote would be for Souvlaki or Pocketless Pita Wrap Sandwiches

          I made some meat pies last weekend with leftover leg....loosely based on the Frenchy's Pasties recipe on epicurious. I just added the cubed meat after the veggies were cooked, and bumped up the seasonings a bit. Very fast and good!

        2. I don't know if you have pan drippings, but at my grandma's house we always chopped the leftover lamb leg meat very fine and reheated it gently in gravy, then served it on toast. It is so marvelous.

          1. One of our favorite lamb leftovers is simply a sandwich with horseradish mayo and arugula. If you like it hot, serve it open-faced with a few shallots on top and no arugula--under the broiler for a couple of minutes until the shallots wilt, and it's delicious!
