Bergy and I share a mutual love of lamb, so I knew this recipe would be excellent!! I have never seen lamb chops so thick in Australia, so it's been in my cookbook for a long time. Yesterday, I had the bright idea to cook my thinner lamb chops, then pile the filling on top of them and finish them under the griller (broiler) for about 2 minutes. What a great idea, and what a fantastic recipe. This would also work with a steak, pork or chicken fillet, just using different herbs. Thanks Bergy.
