How many lamb cutlets should one cook up as a meal for two? My answer: 16
I am sure that is far more than is usually contemplated as they are rather dear these days, but I follow my own rules.
I find them delicious but they are individually so small that I have steadily upped the amount that I order. Note that a much esteemed French dish -- rack of lamb -- consists of only FOUR cutlets.
So tonight Anne cooked up 16 cutlets, of which I had just over half. And with a good salad, French dressing on the salad and a bread roll (thickly spread with REAL butter), I actually thought that I ate a dinner tonight that was as good a dinner as anybody else in the world was eating!
You might guess that I like French cutlets! They must of course be cooked medium to medium rare and need plenty of salt on them.
