Chopped Jr.: Home Version Mystery Basket 5

Entree Basket:  Lamb Chops, Butternut Squash, Graham Crackers and Milk


I haven’t had much experience cooking lamb, but had fun cooking these lamb chops! My plan is to bread the lamb chops in milk, eggs, and graham cracker crumbs.Then, I get them cooking! Now I have to start on my butternut squash. What can I do with it? I think about making a sweet mashed squash. So I get the water boiling and then let them boil for 20 mins.Thank goodness they are cut into small chunks. I only have 30 mins. you know!Now lets check on the chops. They are perfect, exactly 145 degrees! So now I decide I need to mash my squash with butter and  brown sugar.Next lets make something else to fill the rest of the space on the plate. A salad! So I use some of the stuff from the fridge in my salad. It turns out to be spinach, blackberries, carrots, and tomatoes. I toss everything together and quickly whip up a vinaigrette with olive oil, raspberry vinegar, honey, salt, and pepper. 1 minute left!! I need to get everything on the plate! 10,9,8,7,6,5,4 almost 3,2,1 done,0!! Time to dig in!
