Cook Swiss chard in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender, about 5 minutes.
Drain. Squeeze chard dry, then finely chop enough to measure 1 1/2 cups.
Melt butter with 2 tablespoons oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add wild mushrooms, onion and 1 minced garlic clove and sauté until mushrooms are tender, about 6 minutes. Cool.
Transfer to bowl with chard.
Add breadcrumbs, cream, 1 tablespoon rosemary, 1 tablespoon thyme, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and mix to blend. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead; cover and refrigerate. Before continuing, stir mushroom stuffing in skillet over medium-high heat until just lukewarm.)
Preheat oven to 425°F. Open butterflied lamb like book and place cut side up on work surface.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Mix veal and egg into mushroom stuffing.
Spread evenly over lamb; press to adhere. Starting at narrow end, roll up lamb tightly, enclosing filling. Fasten ends with poultry skewers. Rub outside of lamb with remaining 2 tablespoons oil, then with remaining 1/2 tablespoon rosemary, and 1/2 tablespoon thyme.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tie lamb with kitchen string at 2-inch intervals to hold shape. Using small sharp knife, cut several 1-inch-deep slits in top of lamb, spacing apart; insert 1 garlic slice into each slit.
Place lamb on rack in roasting pan.
Roast lamb to desired doneness or until instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of lamb registers 135°F to 140°F for medium-rare, about 1 hour 25 minutes.
Remove from oven. Cover with foil and let stand 15 minutes.
Remove skewers and string.
