Lamb Chops With Minted Hollandaise Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sharon123

Instead of the traditional mint sauce, lamb chops are served here with a creamy hollandaise sauce flavored with fresh mint. The sauce is not difficult to make, as long as it is cooked over gentle heat. Enjoy!

This is so good! First attempt at making Hollandaise, I was getting a little concerned, the mixture was looking like it was curdling, but kept on whisking and was rewarded with a lovely smooth sauce. The colour was great too, as for the lamb chops, cant beat em! Thanks for the sharing a great recipe.
