So I decided to be a sweet wifey the other day and make Big Daddy something special for dinner. Often, when we go out to eat, he’ll get a lamb dish, but we’ve never cooked lamb at home. I picked a nice looking rack of lamb up at the grocery this morning and although they were on the small side, they still looked good. I knew he’d be happy with Grilled Lamb Lollipops. Especially with a name like ‘lollipops’, who wouldn’t like that, right?

So I marinated them for a couple of hours. Actually, I marinated them while I prepped and cooked the side dishes so it wasn’t quite 2 hours.

Grilled Lamb Lollipops Menu:

I served the lamb lollipops with Easy Bacon Potatoes, 10 Minute Rolls and Oriental Salad!

    These are more than perfect! (aka…better than any lamb dish I’ve seen in a restaurant!) We grill all the time. Even in the dead of winter! (Just means more coals when it’s 20 degrees out!) My favorite is a pork butt. Actually anything pig! Your hubs must have been excited over this dish you made for him! (They look perfectly cooked!)

    Yum! I love lamb, and I was so shocked last week when everyone kept commenting that they won’t eat lamb! They are missing out. I wish I could get lamb chops in Iowa, they look delicious :)

      Well, we only have 2 stores and one doesn’t always keep them. We can’t get good seafood very often either. Stinks.

    I have never cooked lamb and I am not sure I have ever eaten it. This recipe looks so good, I will have to consider trying it.

    Thank you for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. I wanted to let you know I will be featuring this at the Top 10 Favorites post that goes live on Monday!

      oh, yayy!!! Thank you so much!! I’m not a big meat fan, like, I can easily do without it, but it was fun to cook and try. Tasted like beef really.
