3-Remove rack and cover the top surface with 2 tbsp of wholegrain mustard, spread evenly. Add all remaining crumb ingredients into a bowl and carefully put your venison rack into the crumbs and press down hard covering the surface you just added mustard to. Any gaps missed just sprinkle on and press down.
