STUFFED RACK OF LAMB
COOKBOOK: What’s Cooking
You will need a piping bag for this one!
What a great idea! Pipe a stuffing into this rack of lamb and serve a top end meal to your family or guests!
Cooking time will vary depending on how you like your lamb cooked. My family loves to eat dead meat, I don’t. I found that it was easier to cut the rack into individual cutlets after I browned them. I then popped them in the oven with stuffing face up, baked for approx 30mins . The stuffing did not leak out. It was incredibly delicious!
What a fantastic way to make a simple dish into a five star restaurant serving!

In the centre of the rack with a knife make as slit and take it as far as you can into the rack. Repeat the same on other side of rack.
