Blogmas Day 6: Grilled Lamb Chops & Garlic-Brie Toast

It’s halfway through Blogmas already, which I can’t believe! I hope you all have been enjoying it as much as I have. The best is yet to come!


Before anything else, I want to announce the winner of the milk frother!



Edited: So sorry I announced a winner prematurely.  The giveaway IS still open until TONIGHT (Wednesday) at 11:59pm. Sorry for any confusion!

Everyone else, there’s another awesome giveaway coming tomorrow from one of my favorite food companies! Can’t wait to show you. In the meantime, I want to show you this amazing meal we had for dinner.

We were in the mood for lamb! And I haven’t done an entree post yet in this series!

Lamb goes so well with fruit, and the roasted grapes are a perfect way to give the meat that sweet compliment. If you’ve never tried roasted grapes, you are truly missing out. They are tender and juicy and incredible.


Grilled Lamb with Balsamic Roasted Grapes

by Lauren

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes


Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 4 lamb shoulder chops (about 1/4 lb. each)
  • 1 t. garlic salt
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. pepper
  • 2 t. curry powder
  • large bunch of grapes (at least a full cups worth)
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 2 t. balsamic vinegear
  • 2 t. honey


Preheat oven to 450.

Rinse, dry, and season lamb chops with salt, garlic salt, pepper, and curry powder. Set aside at room temperature.

Place the bunch of grapes on a cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil and honey.

Roast the grapes in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, turning over and drizzling with the balsamic vinegar after 10 minutes. The grapes should be tender and begin to wrinkle.

While the grapes are roasting, heat a grill pan or grill to medium-high heat.

Grill the lamb until it browns nicely on each side, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare lamb.

Set the lamb aside to rest when it’s done. Serve alongside the roasted grapes, drizzling with the pan juices from the grape pan.

And because I’ve been on a major brie cheese kick lately, I added my favorite ingredient to my usual garlic bread recipe. The result was TO DIE FOR and I had to include it along with the lamb recipe.


Garlic-Brie Toast

by Lauren

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Keywords: bread


Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 4 small slices of italian bread
  • 2 t. earth balance or butter
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/3 c. brie cheese, sliced into fourths (you can do more or less cheese as you please)


Preheat oven to 425.

Spread the butter evenly over each slice of bread, then place them face down on a baking sheet lined with foil.

Toast until the bottoms brown lightly, about 5 minutes.

Flip each piece of bread over, and scrape the garlic clove over each to give it flavor. Then place a slice of brie on that buttered side of each slice and put them back in the oven.

Toast until the brie is melted, another few minutes.

I may be done with exams, but I still have A TON left to do before we leave for Christmas vacation. I’m working every day this week, and I still have schoolwork to turn in and holiday baking to do before this week is over! ‘Tis the season to be busy!

Thanks for reading!
