SPICE CRUSTED RACK OF LAMB

Updated: Dec 1, 2020

Usually, people cook a turkey on Thanksgiving Day, but Turkey is too big for my three-person family. On a smaller scale of Thanksgiving meals, I think turkey breast or ground turkey or chicken or any other meat in small quantity is fine. For this festive meal, I chose a rack of lamb.
