ease: 4/5. Make topping and put into the oven. It's a cinch.
prep time: 5mins to make topping and press onto lamb.
cooking time: 12mins. I cooked mine accidentally for 15mins and it was well done - would take it out at 10 next time for medium.
Total: 17mins. Minimal mess and not that hard to mess up (apart from leaving it too long in the oven).
taste: 3/5. The meat was overcooked so the boys didn't like it that much. Tried to get them to separate the meat from the topping to rate the topping but I think the overall feeling was 'nice, but had better'. I used 600g of meat and halved the topping mixture. It fed three boys ok.
would I make it again: No. Boys liked their meats with spices rather than fresh herbs.
prep time: 4 mins to wash spinach and prepare butter mixture to pour over the top.
cooking time: 6mins. 5mins to boil water, 1 min to blanch spinach.
Total: 10mins. Boiling the water takes the longest.
taste: 4/5. I liked the flavour combinations. Couldn't really taste the Parmesan surprisingly. sultanas were the biggest flavour.
would I make it again: No. Spinach with garlic is still what I prefer.
