Step 1: Prepare Lamb
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large heavy oven-proof skillet over high heat. Sear rack of lamb for 1 to 2 minutes on all sides. Set aside for a few minutes. Brush rack of lamb with the mustard. Roll in the bread crumb mixture until evenly coated. Cover the ends of the bones with foil to prevent charring.

Step 3: Prepare bean gratin
Wash and cut leeks into small bite size pieces, including both the green and white parts.
In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium high heat. Add leeks and onion/garlic blend, cooking for 7-10 minutes until leeks are tender.
Open and drain cannellini beans.
Add cannellini beans, diced tomatoes, lemon zest, chicken stock and parsley and cook until beans are creamy, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Step 4: Check on lamb
Once lamb is done, remove from oven, cover with foil for 15 minutes to rest.
Step 5: Finish gratin
Place bean mix in oven proof dish and top with gryere cheese. Bake for 10 minutes until bubbly.
