For those who enjoy a main course of lamb, here's a quick and delicious treatment for it. The easy preparation gives me the extra time I need to focus on other menu items.

MAKES: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 frenched racks of lamb (1-1/2 pounds each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, parsley, thyme and garlic. Add oil and toss; set aside. Sprinkle lamb with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, brown meat on both sides. Brush mustard over top of meat, then roll in crumb mixture.
  2. Place racks in a shallow baking pan side by side with bones interlaced resting against each other. Bake 30-40 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 4 servings.

Delicious! I cooked it for my husband's birthday and he loved it. It would be very impressive for a dinner party. Great flavors.

Made this for Christmas dinner. Our dinner guests gave it top reviews and demanded the recipe.

Use Dorot frozen parsley and garlic. Also used some Panko in with the bread crumbs.
