Presenting roast of lamb in this elegant fashion is a sure crowd pleaser. Keep in mind that the size of the roast will affect its roasting time, and be sure to have the meat at room temperature when you begin.


  • 1 rack or crown of lamb (3 to 5 pounds)
  • Olive oil, to cover lamb
  • Dijon mustard, to brush on lamb
  • 1 cup fresh bread crumbs, or ground almonds or macadamia nuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosemary crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme


Brush meat with olive oil and toast at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. Brush on mustard. Mix crumbs or ground nuts with garlic, parsley, rosemary, pepper, and thyme, and gently apply a coating over the mustard by hand. Return to oven and continue to roast at 375 degrees F for 25 to 35 minutes (lamb should be pink inside after about 25 minutes of cooking). Serve with a mustard or garlic hollandaise sauce, if desired.
