MY CRISPY BREAST OF LAMB

Now if you’ve never tried breast of lamb, you’re missing out! And if you’ve tried crispy breast of lamb! My word you are in for a treat with this recipe 

Now it does take a bit of preparing, but believe me when I tell you that it’s well worth the wait 

Also, watch your butchers face when you ask him for breast of lamb and you tell him about this recipe! You’ll be friends for life!! 

SHOPPING LIST 

1 breast of lamb 

2 carrots peeled and sliced 

2 onions peeled and sliced 

A couple of sprigs of thyme and rosemary 

A good glass of white wine 

A good glass of water 

Salt and pepper 

FOR THE CRISPY COATING 

Good dollop of English mustard (love the word dollop) 

2 beaten egg 

Breadcrumbs to coat ( I use panko, available in the supermarket, but you don’t have to) 

METHOD 

Place your lamb breast into an ovenproof dish 

Scatter over the carrots, onions, herbs and pour in the water and wine 

Season really well with salt and pepper 

Cover tightly with tin foil 

Place in a preheated oven 140c for 3 1/2 hours 

You can remove from time to time and baste the meat 

Leave to cool slightly, and remove the bones carefully 

Place the lamb breast onto a baking sheet and place another baking sheet on top 

Place something heavy on top ( tins of beans etc ) 

Leave to press,  overnight if possible, but at least a few hours 

NOW THIS IS THE BEST BIT!!

Slice the breast into fingers 

Brush the slices with the mustard 

Now dip them into the egg and then coat in the breadcrumbs 

Now you can put these into a hot oven to crisp up, but being an impatient lad! I heat my fryer to 170c and deep fry them for 3-4 minutes until golden 

I just serve these with mustard mayonnaise or pickled gherkins 

Once you have made these, trust me, you’ll make them over and over again
