    This is your complete meal here and it sounds wonderful. I haven't tried it yet, but just thinking about it has me putting it to the top of my "need to cook" list. This is from a book about roasting meats...

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In large saucepan, combine potatoes with salted water to cover by 3 inches. Place over high heat; bring to a boil, and cook until tender when pierced with a knife, about 30 minutes.
    3. 3

    4. 4
      Using dampened kitchen string, tie each lamb chop to hold tail in place, curled into the chop, pinwheel-like. Place chops in roasting pan just large enough to accommodate them in single layer and season with slat and pepper. Drizzle oil evenly over chops.
    5. 5
      Place lamb in oven and roast for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 300 degrees F and conti8nue roasting until thermometer inserted into thickest part away from bone registers 150 degrees F for medium, about 10 minutes longer. Remove lamb to warmed platter, cover loosely with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      When potatoes are ready, drain and, when just cool enough to handle, peel, place in bowl, and mash. Return potatoes to saucepan and add butter, cream, mustard, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, place over medium heat and stir until mixture is heated through. Spoon bed of mashed potatoes on each warmed dinner plate, top with 2 lamb chops, and place a spoonful of mint pesto on the side.

      DH and I made these lamb chops for dinner last night and enjoyed them very much. I could have taken or left the mint pesto as the chops were very tasty and tender without it, but it did have a nice cool flavor. I had four loin chops so I halved the recipe with fine results. However, despite halving the potato ingredients, I ended up using the full amount of cream and whole grain mustard (I used meaux) as posted as I thought it needed more after tasting the potatoes with the proportions halved. This worked out well and I really enjoyed the flavor of the potatoes. I left the potatoes unpeeled. Also, I did not tie a string around the lamb chops as they fit in my pan just fine and I didnt see the point. We enjoyed this meal very much. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT5.
