Cornmeal Crusted Lamb Loin Recipe http://buttecreekmill.com/2014/04/cornmeal-crusted-lamb-loin-recipe/ http://buttecreekmill.com/2014/04/cornmeal-crusted-lamb-loin-recipe/#respond Wed, 09 Apr 2014 19:06:41 +0000 http://buttecreekmill.com/?p=3280 If you’re looking for something different to do with your lamb this Easter give this Cornmeal Crusted  Lamb Loin Recipe a try. The Butte Creek Mill cornmeal adds a great layer of flavor as well as texture to one of Easters favorite dishes.


  • 2 boneless lamb loins
  • salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Butte Creek Mill cornmeal
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Sweet potato puree, for serving (optional)


 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Season the lamb loins with salt and pepper. In a food processor, pulse together the cornmeal and herbs until the rosemary and thyme are very finely chopped. Dredge seasoned lamb in the cornmeal mixture, pressing it into the meat on all sides. Set aside.
Heat duck fat in a heavy skillet over medium-high flame. Sear the lamb loins on all sides – you should have a nice, golden brown crust. Finish cooking in the oven until lamb reaches desired temperature, about 5-8 minutes. We recommend medium-rare or 135 degrees F on an instant read thermometer. Remove the lamb from the oven and rest on a cutting board for at least 5 minutes. Slice loins and serve with sweet potato puree and your favorite seasonal vegetables.

Healthy Celebration of a Healthy Success http://buttecreekmill.com/2014/01/healthy-celebration-of-a-healthy-success/ http://buttecreekmill.com/2014/01/healthy-celebration-of-a-healthy-success/#respond Mon, 06 Jan 2014 23:47:10 +0000 http://buttecreekmill.com/?p=3258 Your company secured a multimillion dollar deal. Or the previous quarter produced incredibly amazing profits. Or you opened up 4 new offices in the state. Well, such events call for a huge celebration.

Behind every organizational success, lies the employees’ efforts and hard work. And in order to motivate them to keep working hard, it is imperative that you give them incentives and perks. In other words it’s vital that you share this success with them AND make them feel important.

Money is definitely the most powerful motivator. However considering the cost constraints of companies, it is not always feasible to give monetary bonuses to the employees. Nevertheless, it does not mean that you should not give them anything.

There are several other things that are affordable and look good as corporate gifts.  For example, the Butte Creek Mill gift boxes. These are available in numerous packages, each which contains a different set of goodies.

The Butte Creek Mill Gift Box # 15 Home made meal assortment includes a Country Spice Bread Mix, Mixed Bean Soup, Pancake and Waffle Mix, Butte Creek Mill Cocoa, Marionberry Syrup, 10 Grain Bread Mix, Marionberry Jam and several other treats.

Such gift boxes are not only ideal presents for women or married employees but also for those living alone. The food items contained in these gift boxes make cooking quick and easy. Plus you can also compliment this gift box with some wearable items like Butte Creek Mill T-shirts or sweat shirts.

Have the shirt wrapped along with the gift box and have a caption written on it. Something like, We Care OR Have a Healthy Breakfast OR You Deserve a Sweet Treat etcetera.

So, how does it sound to you? Isn’t it the perfect corporate gift to celebrate your success? Affordable, healthy and something different!

You don’t always have to spend the entire amount of additional profits on bonuses. Even if you do so, it will make your employees expect bonuses. If you’re not able to present such perks next time around, they might get demotivated. To prevent this from happening, it is important that you give them a variety of perks so that they don’t expect the same every time.

Food gift boxes, shirts and accessories will not only save you money but will also make them happy and content. This way they won’t expect money all the time and won’t get demotivated in your inability to do so.

Presumably quite a lot, particularly if you are a morning person, love to cook or simply like to indulge in a treat as scrumptious as pancakes.

Serving Ideas:

There are plenty of ways to indulge in this recipe. You can add roasted pecans and/or dried fruit on top. They are rich in iron content and other health benefits. You can also have it with fresh fruit or a dollop of whipped cream. Or you can have it with your Grandma’s secret sauce – the options are endless! You can also use Butte Creek’s pancakes mix to get the goodness of organic products in one convenient and easy to cook recipe mix.
