by Jo Kenny

If you want to enjoy a delicious lamb roast but don’t want to invest the time, or let’s face it, quite a lot of cash, for a large lamb joint, then this dish is for you. Delicious lamb chops, cooked in one tray on a bed of vegetables and potatoes. Ready to enjoy in just 30 minutes.

Roasted Lamb Cutlet Tray Bake

Roast dinners are elite but they do come with a hell of a lot of washing up. So if you’re in the mood for something stress free then this tray bake really is ideal. All you need is a chopping board and a roasting tray.


  • Serves 4
  • 8 lamb cutlets
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • Handful of fresh thyme
  • 1 lemon
  • 6 large maris pipers, sliced
  • 2 large handfuls of Chantenay carrots
  • 1 large shallot, sliced
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


Preheat your oven to 180c.

Marinate the lamb cutlets in salt, pepper, garlic granules, thyme and the zest and juice of a lemon. Set aside. Marinating for a couple of hours is ideal.

Next, add your sliced potatoes to a roasting tray and then top with the carrots, shallot, asparagus and garlic cloves. Drizzle the olive oil over the veg (don’t worry if it feels less than normal, when you cook lamb in butter or oil it doesn’t need much as it is already fatty – the juices will cook the veg) and Worcestershire sauce, then top with the lamb cutlets. 

Roast in the oven at 180c for 30 minutes.

Lamb Cuts

Lamb cutlets look really attractive and deliver lovely sweet and tender meat. The best time and temperature for lamb depends on the cut but for medium rare lamb cutlets 30 minutes in the oven at 180c is sufficient. For a well-done cutlet leave them in an additional 5 minutes.

Lamb chops can also be swapped as an alternative cut of meat which works well at the same temperature and time for this dish.
