"This recipe is so easy and quick to prepare," notes Lorene Whittingham of Denver, Colorado. "We have lamb often on Saturday nights for dinner along with double-baked potatoes, tossed salad and a vegetable."


  • 1 rack of lamb (1 pound) , trimmed
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme


  1. Place the lamb on a greased rack in a greased roasting pan; rub with garlic, salt and pepper. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 20 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, butter, parsley and thyme. Press onto the meat.
  3. Bake 20-30 minutes longer or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
