Rosemary Lamb Chops
While the lamb chops from Beth Tomlinson of Morgantown, West Virginia do make for an upscale meal, they are really fast and easy. “I tend to make them for special occasions, although they are quick enough for a nice weeknight dinner,” Beth explains. The chops are perfectly seasoned with rosemary and thyme and have a fabulous presentation sure to impress guests.

- 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme

Very simple and tasty! I substituted lemon juice for half the olive oil. It combined very nicely with the herbs. A true go-to recipe, great when crunched for time!
