Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: French
Serves: 4
  • 1 Cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 cloves garlic; minced
  • 1 Tablespoon minced fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme or parsley)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 lamb rack (about 2 pounds); bones Frenched
  1. Heat the oven to 475 degrees.
  2. Combine the bread crumbs, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat, then add the bread-crumb mixture and cook, stirring until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Season the lamb and place it meaty-side up in a small roasting pan. Roast for 10 minutes, them remove it from the oven. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees.
  4. Pat the bread-crumb mixture onto the meaty side of the rack of lamb and return to the oven. Cook until the lamb registers 135 degrees on a meat thermometer for medium-rare, about 10 to 15 minutes. Slice into chops and serve.
