    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Bring a small pot with potatoes and enough salted water to cover to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook until tender, 15-18 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot. Add buttermilk and butter and mash until desired consistency is reached. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. While potatoes cook, roast lamb.

    Sear and Roast the Lamb

    Pat lamb chops dry, and season both sides with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Place a large pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and lamb chops to hot pan. Sear until well- browned, 3-5 minutes. Transfer chops to prepared baking sheet, seared side up, and roast until chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-10 minutes. Rest lamb 5 minutes. Pour off all but 2 tsp. oil out of pan and reserve remaining in pan. While lamb roasts, make chimichurri.
