A record breaking number of recipes were entered into the American Lamb Board's annual "Best American Lamb Family Recipe Contest" but only one took home the grand prize. From Gardnerville, Nev., Terri Crandall's Rack of Lamb with Cranberry-Gorgonzola Butter and Cranberry Glaze was crowned winner for the recipe's ewe-nique use of seasonal ingredients, mouth-watering flavors and modern spin on a classic holiday rack of lamb.
Crandall shared her love for lamb as a versatile protein, noting that lamb is the most popular main dish choice for home-cooked family dinners. As winner of the Best American Lamb Family Recipe, Crandall will receive an American lamb cut of choice to serve a family of six and a $100 gift certificate to Williams-Sonoma to pick out the perfect roasting pan.
