Caprese lamb stacks

Recipe from: 11 November 2010

Ingredients 6
Servings 4
Time 00:10


  • 12
    lamb chops (Woolies free range loin chops but you could also use the French trimmed ones)
  • 6
    1 cm slices of mozzarella (about 300g)
  • 6
    slices of tomato (3 tomatoes)
  • 12
    fresh basil leaves
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste


In a large frying pan, brown the lamb chops for +- 3 minutes per side.
Place on a suitable roasting tray and season with lemon juice, salt & pepper.
On 6 of the lamb chops, place a slice of tomato (sprinkled with some salt), a few basil leaves and finally a slice of mozzarella.
Cover with the other 6 lamb chops to make little ‘sandwiches’ and tie together with string or stick a skewer through it.
Place in a 180°c oven for 10 minutes until the cheese has melted and the lamb is just cooked.
Don’t worry if the mozzarella has oozed everywhere, that adds to the yumminess. Just scoop it all up and serve like that.
