Yet another impromptu stay-home Saturday cook-out. This time round we decided to step out of our comfort zone and attempt a new meat dish. So we decided on lamb with some seemingly healthy sides to go along with it.
All it took to whip up this herb-crusted lamb chops was chopped rosemary, garlic blended together with Japanese panko. The Man slathered the mix on the lamb, pan-fried it a little before popping it into the oven. The result? A delicious aroma of fragrant herbs locked in together with the chops.
I was going on a little no-carb trip so for the sides, I decided to make a Cauliflower mash with bacon bits (recipe thanks to M)! The Man was hesitant about this recipe but after tasting a spoon of the mash, he declared it yummy. 🙂
And this was really simple to make! All you needed to do was to mash boiled cauliflower, with a tablespoon of sour cream, chopped chives and bacon bits.
Ta-dah! It’s that easy!!!
I was worried that the Man wouldn’t like the mash so I made a back-up. Used the remaining half of the cauliflower, tossed them in olive oil, baked them with some chopped garlic. Once the veggies are ready, I topped some Parmesan cheese on it. This was also another great side that I will probably make again another time.
Cheers to another great home-cooked meal! 🙂
