Baked Lamb Chops – Baking Lamb Chops in the Oven

These baked lamb chops are beautifully tender and have a delicious rosemary cream sauce. The recipe makes a nice main course alternative to pork or beef. I’ve you’ve never tried baked lamb, you are in for a treat.Oven baked Lamb chops

Lamb loin chops are a tender cut of meat and much less expensive than the fancy rack of lamb so often seen in gourmet dining establishments.  You can cook it many ways, but I like to bake lamb chips in the oven.

My husband and I lived in Australia for 15 years. While we were there, we often had lamb which is very commonly found in the grocery stores there. It is not as commonly seen here but worth searching for it.  Many grocery stores stock it now.  The flavor of baked lamb chops is amazing.

How to make Baked Lamb Chops

Every year I make some recipes featuring lamb for Richard’s birthday. This recipe for oven baked lamb chops is easy to do, and yet so delicious. The lamb chops are placed in a baking dish surrounded by onion chunks and baked till done. While the chops are cooking, you make the delicate sauce which is a combination of rosemary, onion, milk, veggie stock and cream.  Oven baked Lamb chopsCook gently and pour over the baked chops for a delicious meal.  These were great, with my Bistro Style French Potatoes Gratin Dauphinois as a side dish.
