Herb and Lemon Crusted Lamb Chops

Where I’m from, which is a little plot outside the outskirts of Vanderbijlpark in the Vaal,  (yeah, that’s me) we would enjoy farm fresh produce straight from nature.

We had a chicken coop where we would gather fresh eggs everyday, had a cow or two and fed pigs fat for the holiday feasts.

I can’t recall if we ever had sheep, most probably did, but what I do remember is the delicious lamb chops my mom used to pan fry in her electric frying pan.  She used to season it with an amazing dried herb spice I just can’t replicate.

However, I did decide to dazzle these chops with a bit of mixed herbs, lemon and cheesy breadcrumbs – and boy, was it a hit!

So, to serve I made fluffy rice and simply took the baking tray with all the fattiness and crumbled bits of herbs and breadcrumbs after cooking time, added one stock sachet, a few tablespoons of water and whatever herbs were left… Guys, this was the most AMAZING gravy and I am happy to report that hubby totally approved! Have a good one!

Instructions
  1. First off, heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Rub the lamb chops with olive oil, season with salt and black pepper and set aside.
  3. Blend the toasts (if you are using normal sliced bread, I’d say toast about three slices to blend with ½ cup of grated parmesan)
  4. Combine the breadcrumbs with finely chopped herbs and lemon zest.
  5. Dip and crumb the oily lamb chops and transfer to an oven safe baking tray.
  6. Bake for 40 minutes on 190 degrees Celsius until crispy.
