Lamb Noisette Recipe

This lamb noisette recipe is our family's favourite Thanksgiving recipe. We used to do turkey over Thanksgiving and lamb noisette as an alternative to those in the family that do not prefer stuffed turkey. It quickly overtook turkey as the favourite and till this day, we only prepare lamb noisette over Thanksgiving.

I personally think the reason why our family prefers lamb noisette is because of the juicy, tasty noisette cuts of the lamb. The meat is tasty and the children in our family love it.

Noisette (which means hazelnut in French) is a small round piece of lean meat, especially lamb. It is the leanest lamb cut. The bread stuffing used in this lamb noisette recipe is the same bread stuffing we used to use with the roast turkey or chicken. It is a classic bread stuffing with onions and sage and works well with the lamb noisette.

This is a mouthwatering lamb noisette recipe and teases all the senses. It looks great, smells fantastic, and makes your tastebuds come back for more. We hope you will enjoy this lamb noisette recipe. If you do, please tell us what you think.
