I saw a show where the chef deboned a turkey, leg-thigh combo and knew that I had to give that a try and it turned out fantastic!

I went to a farmers market and picked up a fresh leg-thigh and took my time to debone it.

Then I decided to stuff it with a ground lamb mix. I started with ground lamb seasoned like sausage and added an egg and some sun-dried tomatoes.

Then I sauteed some shiitake mushrooms and shallots with garlic and used that to stuff the leg-thigh combo.

I shaped the leftover lamb into a loaf like a fattie and cooked them both on my small with some pecan for flavor.
