This is the most wonderful rack of lamb I have ever eaten. I know the lavender sounds strange to add in but you will not believe the taste of it! My friend made up the recipe and it was my idea to add in the Lavender. It is a herb, just usually not used as one!

I used fresh lamb chops instead of rack of lamb. To give this recipe more of a French flair, I used herbes de Provence (recipe #18553) for the Italian seasoning and used homemade breadcrumbs.. I couldn't force myself to use garlic salt with expensive lamb, so used fresh garlic cloves instead. The lavender was subtle yet delicious, although I used fresh buds as that's all I had on hand. The Dijon gave the lamb a nice "zing". We really enjoyed the wine sauce.
