Method

  • Preheat oven to 190⁰C.

  • Place the bread, garlic, oil, rosemary, parmesan and parsley in a food processor. Blitz until the mix is all finely chopped and combined. Place mix in a small bowl.
  • Toss lamb in flour and shake away excess. Next, coat lamb in the whisked egg then toss in the crumb mixture. Place chops on a plate.
