- 8 lamb lollipop chops
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1 tablespoon honey (optional, for a touch of sweetness)
- Fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish

1. Marinate the Lamb:
- In a bowl, combine minced garlic, chopped rosemary, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, and black pepper.
- Place lamb chops in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them, ensuring each chop is well coated.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight for more intense flavor.

2. Preheat the Grill or Oven:
- If using a grill, preheat it to medium-high heat. If using an oven, preheat it to 400°F (200°C).

3. Bring Lamb to Room Temperature:
- Take the lamb chops out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking to allow them to come to room temperature.

4. Grill or Roast:
- If grilling, place the lamb chops on the preheated grill. Cook for about 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare, adjusting the time based on your desired doneness.
- If roasting in the oven, place the marinated lamb chops on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast for approximately 15-20 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

5. Glaze with Honey (Optional):
- In the last few minutes of cooking, brush the lamb chops with honey if desired. This adds a hint of sweetness and a beautiful glaze.

6. Rest and Garnish:
- Allow the lamb chops to rest for a few minutes before serving to let the juices redistribute.
- Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs for a festive touch.

7.Serve and Enjoy:
- Arrange the lollipop lamb chops on a serving platter and present them as an elegant and delicious holiday dish.
