I made this for my husband, he said it was great and he especially loved the topping. Next time I cook lamb, I will make it the same way.

These racks of lamb are so tasty. The oven roasting makes them tender and the breadcrumb topping is my favorite part! When my DH and I want to impress guests, this does the trick. It even converts those who say they don't like lamb.
