Roast rack of lamb with mustard and herb topping
Really delicious. You can vary the type of herbs and use your favourites!

1 rack of lamb, well trimmed

Salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to season

1 tbsp. olive oil

4 tbsp. parsley, chopped

1 tbsp. thyme, chopped

75g breadcrumbs

Knob butter

1 tbsp. good quality mustard

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/ Gas Mark 6.

Season the lamb with salt and pepper.  Heat the oil in a pan and brown the lamb for a couple of minutes until golden. Leave to cool.

Meanwhile make up the topping – combine the herbs, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper and butter and mix well.  

When the lamb has cooled, spread the mustard over the top and spoon on the herb and breadcrumb mixture. Press well onto the lamb.

Place in the preheated oven and roast for 25 minutes. At this stage the lamb will be medium rare.

Allow to sit in a warm place for 5-10 minutes before serving.  

Delicious with roast potatoes and roast vegetables.
