  • Ingredients:
  • 8 cups of broccoli florets
  • Salt for blanching water
  • 2 strips of thick cup bacon cut into 1/4 inch wide strips
  • 5 eggs beaten
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 ounces of Yaggi’s Cheddar cheese shredded

1 Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil (1 Tbsp salt for 2 quarts of water). Add the broccoli florets and boil for 3-5 minutes or until just tender enough so that a fork can easily pierce the floret, but still firm. Strain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.

2 While the water in step one is coming to a boil, cook the bacon pieces on medium heat in a frying pan until lightly browned, but not crisp. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess fat. Set aside.

3 Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Butter a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. In a bowl, whisk the eggs into the flour, then whisk in the cream and milk. Add the black pepper (more or less to taste), salt, and mustard. Mix in about a third of the cheese.

4 Place the parboiled broccoli florets in the casserole dish, sprinkling about a third of the cheese over the broccoli florets as you lay them down. Sprinkle the bacon pieces over the broccoli. Pour the egg, cream, milk, cheese mixture over the broccoli, moving the broccoli pieces a bit so that the mixture gets into all the nooks and crannies. Sprinkle the casserole with the remaining cheese.


  • Ingredients:
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2lbs of canned chicken drained, can be used)
  • 6 slices of Yaggi’s Mild or Medium Swiss Cheese
  • 1 can creamed chicken soup
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1 box stuffing mix
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


Cover bottom of pan with chicken.
Lay Swiss Cheese over chicken.
Mix 1 can cream of chicken soup and ¼ cup milk.
Pour mixture over chicken.
Top with stuffing mix.
Drizzle ¼ cup butter on top.
Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes.
Serve over rice.

  • Ingredients
  • 4 heads broccoli (cut into 1 inch florets)
  • Olive oil for drizzling
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 1 whole onion diced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 cups half & half
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 3 cups of your favorite Yaggi’s cheese grated (mild Cheddar, sharp Cheddar, Jack, etc.)
  • 1 cup chicken broth


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Remove 2 cups of the broccoli florets, cut in half, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet cut-side down and bake until the florets begin to crisp and turn slightly brown, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle the flour on top. Stir to combine and cook until the flour is absorbed and smells lightly toasted, 1 minute or so. Add the mild and half-and half. Add the nutmeg, then the broccoli, a small dash of salt and plenty of black pepper. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to low. Simmer
until the broccoli is tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Stir in the cheese and allow to melt.
Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve the soup as is, mash with a potato masher to break up the broccoli a bit, or transfer to a blender in two batches and puree completely. (If you puree in a blender, return the soup to the heat to heat back up. Splash in some chicken broth if needed for thinning.)

When blending hot liquids, first let cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open; this will prevent the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters and pulse  until smooth.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cups finely chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth (from a 32 ounce carton)
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 4 cups shredded Yaggi’s sharp Cheddar cheese (16 ounces)
  • 1 can beer (12 ounces)

In 4-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add carrots, celery and onion; cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until celery and onions are transparent.
Stir in flour, paprika, black pepper and ground red pepper. Add broth; heat to boiling over medium heat. Boil and stir 1 minute.
Reduce heat; stir in whipping cream and cheese. Heat until cheese is melted, stirring occasionally. Stir in beer. If desired, serve with popcorn.
