L is for Lamb Cutlets Crumbed for The Kids Cook Monday

Lamb cutlets are not something we eat regularly in the threefootcooks household. Not because we don't like lamb, we do, but because they can be an expensive cut of meat when you're on a budget.

Lamb cutlets are, however, a great finger food for children and since Bear is becoming a meat eater I want to try dishes that might encourage this.  We do eat meat but since developing their fussy eating phases it has been hard to get Bear and Bee to try anything other than bacon, ham and meatballs.

Crumbing is a great technique for kids to get involved with.  Especially if you have more than 1 willing kitchen assistant.  Bear, Bee and myself normally take turns rolling the cutlets in flour, egg wash and bread crumbs. If your children like helping with crumbing you can make lots of yummy foods like crumbed chicken breasts for chicken parmigiana and crumbed veal schnitzels.

7. Roll the cutlet in the breadcrumb mix making sure it is well coated.
8. Place crumbed cutlet onto the prepared tray.
9. Repeat steps 5 to 8 with remaining cutlets.
10. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, turning halfway.  Depending on how well done you like your meat you may want to take them out a little earlier.  Also if the cutlets are thin they won't need this length of cooking.
