Crusted Rack of Lamb

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by MarieRynr

I got this recipe out of the September issue of BBC Good Food Magazine. I made it last night for a dinner party and it was delicious! I love the herby crust which went really well with the underlying flavor of the Dijon and honey. I served it with a potato gratin and steamed asparagus.

Wow, Marie, this is really great lamb. I halved the recipe for just my husband and myself, but followed everything as written. I used the last (I think) of my fresh garden herbs for the crust and used Panko for the breadcrumbs. We loved the flavor of the Dijon and honey under the crust. This is a must-try recipe! I served this with your Sauteed Yellow Turnips and chia's roasted fingerling potatoes. Fantastic dinner! Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe!
