Manchego cheese Welsh Lamb Cutlets


  1. First, place the Welsh Lamb chops on a board and use a sharp knife to carefully make a slit in the fat side of each cutlet – it will create a shallow pocket.
  2. Next take a slice of cheese and place into the pocket, then add a small teaspoon of chutney and wrap each cutlet in one or two rashers of pancetta or streaky bacon.
  3. Place each Welsh Lamb cutlet under a preheated grill and cook for eight or ten minutes on each side or until cooked through and browned.
  4. Now in a large bowl, add the chopped cooked new potatoes, mayonnaise, red chilli, tomatoes, spring onions and a pinch of cayenne pepper – gently mix together.
  5. Serve the delicious Welsh Lamb cutlets with the potato salad and extra salad leaves.
