Looking for something fast but impressive to serve company on a busy weeknight? “These lamb chops make a really nice, last-minute meal for guests,“ notes Candy McMenamin in Lexington, South Carolina. “I pick up the ingredients on the way home from work and usually finish off the menu with a green salad and new potatoes.“
A FRIEND shared this recipe with me many years ago.
My son-in-law loves these lamb shanks as part of a hearty meal with baked potatoes, a hot vegetable and fresh fruit salad. Of course, I include mint jelly on the side.

Mashed parsnips and potatoes spread over a savory mixture of lamb and fresh herbs make this dish extra special. The recipe comes from the Scotch-Irish who put down roots in this area long ago. —Tina Price, Deep Water, West Virginia
