Rack of Lamb Dijon

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Normaone

This recipe was printed in our local paper. It was submitted by request by a fabulous restaurant in our area that used to serve it. Unfortunately, the restaurant no longer exists. But, we remember it fondly every time we make this recipe. It can be doubled or tripled as needed. And, the prep work can be done well in advance of cooking and kept in the refrigerator. This is definitely one of our favorites.

This is a very tasty recipe that I enjoyed . My rack was quite thin, I roasted it for 20 minutes at 450F, I did not check the internal temp and it was a little rarer than I usually have it - it was wonderful. If you like it just pink check the temperature especially if you have a larger rack. I used Panko crumbs as I am not familiar with French crumbs - They formed a lovely crunchy crust.Thanks Normaone I just may have my lamb a bit rarer from now on
