2 racks of lamb

4 sheets of puff pastry

1 cup of cheddar

3 1/4 cups of stone-ground mustard, divided

1/2 cup of pistachios

1/2 cup of butter

Kitchen twine

Roasting pan

Step 1/3

Make a notch in a wooden skewer and tie a knot with kitchen twine, use this homemade needle to sew together your two racks of lamb, bone side up. Place a whole cauliflower in the center, set aside. In a mixing bowl, mix together 3 cups mustard, red onion, thyme, rosemary. Cover the sides of the lamb with the sauce.

Place lamb on baking sheet and then cover the cauliflower with butter, top with pistachios. Meanwhile, fill your 4 puff pastry doughs with cheddar cheese, rolling into long logs. Weave the cheese-stuffed dough through the bones. Placed slided potatoes around the roast in the pan and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes at 250 °F.
