Parmesan Encrusted Rack of Lamb


Everything is better with Parmesan cheese. This elegant Parmesan Encrusted Rack Of Lamb is fairly simple to make and will make a marvelous presentation when served.

Lamb has always been a great springtime meal always served at Easter time. But as we all know it makes a great meal any time of the year. When I think of Lamb I think of a romantic candlelight dinner with nice soft music playing in the background.

I’m sure it’s that way in some people's homes but not in mine. When I make this dish the kids are usually screaming and arguing and there's a ton of people running in and out of my kitchen. That’s about as romantic as it gets. But in the end I know everyone will be sitting down together and sharing a great meal.

  • 1/2 cup of seasoned breadcrumbs
