Preheat the oven to 160°C. Combine the breadcrumbs, sausage meat, parsley and seasoning in a large mixing bowl until combined. Lay the lamb shoulder on a flat surface and season the inner side of it.

Arrange the stuffing in the centre evenly and wrap up into a tight package. Tie using butcher's twine at 2inch intervals to secure well. Rub the outside of the stuffed shoulder with olive oil and season well. Sear in a hot frying pan set over a high heat until golden all over. Tuck a sprig of rosemary under the butcher's twine.

Arrange the vegetables in a large casserole dish and pour the stock in. Sit the lamb on top and roast for 2-2 ¼ hours until done. Remove and allow the lamb to rest for 10 minutes before garnishing with the remaining rosemary sprigs inside the dish and outside as well before serving.
