Mamma Crimi’s Baked Lamb’s Head Recipe
1 fresh baby lamb head split in half [by your butcher at Cappuccio’s]
1 can crushed tomatoes
3 cloves garlic
parsley, oregano, salt & pepper
Wash Lamb head and place in a baking dish with the inside of the head facing up.
Season with breadcrumbs, 2 or 3 cloves of crushed garlic, dried parsley, oregano, salt and pepper.
Add crushed tomatoes on to the top of the heads. Add 1 cup of water to the baking dish. Cover the dish with foil and bake at 375 degrees.
Bake for 1 hour for smaller heads or longer for the larger ones, adding water as needed so they don’t dry out. Remove the foil and let the heads brown for a few minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand before serving.
