Lamb with Pesto

September 30, 2016

I made a lamb with pesto last night and it turned out great.   I was doing a play on a chimichurri sauce Italian style!  If you buy the leg of lamb chops, they are easy to cook either in the oven or BBQ.  I decided to throw them in the oven and put brussel sprouts with them with a little balsamic reduction and bacon bits.  The flavors blended well with the pesto.


When I have time I like to make my own pesto which is just olive oil, basil and pine nuts.  However, if I don’t have time I buy it.  There are so many great ones out there that you don’t need to make it homemade.

I coated the lamb first with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper.  Then I coated both sides of the lamb with pesto.  I also drizzled a bit of olive oil on the brussel sprouts along with a bit of balsamic reduction I made that I keep in the refrigerator.  You can just use a bit of regular balsamic too.   I added bacon bits that you buy in a jar.  I keep that on hand when I am in a hurry.  Of course, making the bacon bits yourself is always better!

I cooked for 25 minutes in the over at 350.
