How to Bake Lamb with Oregano in Parchment

As a great fan of parchment paper & the foods baked with it, I am amazed at the flavors released from compatible herbs.

oreganoUsing parchment to cook your heartier meats, such as lamb, allows you to keep a good quantity of the herbs touching the meat without scorching the herbs.

Also, absorbed are the vegetables or fruit flavors you might add inside the parchment.

Using parchment, and as a part of your Fall menu, is baked lamb with oregano.
