Sprinkle lamb with salt and pepper. Whisk together mustard, garlic and thyme; spread over top of meat. Let stand for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook bread crumbs, stirring, for 5 minutes or until crisp and golden. Let cool slightly. Press onto lamb.

With rib ends up, press racks together to interlink bones and form “guard of honour.” Pull bases about 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart to stabilize; place on baking sheet.

Roast in 425°F (220°C) oven for about 25 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in centre registers 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing between bones. Serve with beans.
