Marcella Hazan Parmesan Lamb Chops by Angela Roberts

Today, I am in Milan. As I was eating a breaded veal cutlet last night, I thought of  Marcella Hazan’s Parmesan Crusted Lamb Chops. Normally, I wouldn’t bread lamb chops and especially not think of a parmesan crust, but these are amazing.

These just might be the best lamb chops you have ever eaten. You won’t believe how juicy and flavorful they are. As you bite upon the parmesan crust, you will want more.

I like meat that requires no sauces, etc. And, these are just pick up and eat as they are, and if you are like me, you’ll get every little morsel off of the bone. Serve a salad with a lemony dressing or a bounty of roasted asparagus and you have the perfect meal.

You can prepare the chops ahead and refrigerate. Take out 30 minutes before frying to bring to room temperature and enjoy a “dinner party” meal in the middle of a week.

  1. I’ve been enjoying you trip pics (well, all except those shoes), but now I’m wondering if you packed a kitchen and chef’s togs with you too. Enjoy it all. GREG

    1. What does flattening accomplish?
      a.) quicker cooking time, so the meat is cooked perfectly by the time the crust is perfect, and
      b.) more surface area for the crust.
