Crown Roast Of Lamb
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Reserve or freeze ground lamb from the trimmings. Make several slits in the roast with the tip of a knife. Insert the garlic slivers into slits. Brush roast with olive oil. Combine thyme and pepper; rub over the roast. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Crumble a piece of aluminum foil into a boil to fill cavity, so that meat will hold it's shape. Wrap foil around bone tips to prevent burning.
