    Spread the filling mixture into the crust, smoothing out the top. Garnish with whipped cream piped along the perimeter of the cheesecake and top with stacked prepared & cubed Rice Krispy Treats in the center. Chill for at least 2 hours in the fridge before cutting into slices.

  • Broccoli Cheddar Casserole

    • 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.

  • Quiche Lorraine

    • Ingredients
    • PASTRY CRUST:
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/3 cup plus 1 Tablespoon of shortening
    • 2-3 Tablespoon cold water
    • FILLING:
    • 8 slices of bacon cooked crisp and crumbled (1/2 cup)
    • 1 cup shredded Yaggi’s Swiss or Cheddar Cheese
    • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
    • 4 large eggs
    • 2 cups whipping cream or half and half
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

    Directions

    In medium bowl, mix flour and salt. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry almost cleans side of bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons more water can be added if necessary).

    Gather pastry into a ball. Shape into flattened round on lightly floured surface. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate about 45 minutes or until dough is firm and cold, yet pliable. This allows the shortening to become slightly firm, which helps make the baked pastry more flaky. If refrigerated longer, let pastry soften slightly before rolling.

    Heat oven to 425° F. With floured rolling pin, roll pastry into round 2 inches larger than upside-down 9-inch quiche dish or glass pie plate. Fold pastry into fourths; place in quiche dish. Unfold and ease into dish, pressing firmly against bottom and side. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1 inch from rim of pie plate. Fold and roll pastry under, even with plate; flute as desired.

    Carefully line pastry with a double thickness of foil, gently pressing foil to bottom and side of pastry. Let foil extend over edge to prevent excessive browning. Bake 10 minutes. Carefully remove foil and bake 2 to 4 minutes longer or until pastry just begins to brown and has become set. If crust bubbles, gently push bubbles down with back of spoon.

     Reduce oven temperature to 325° F. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion in pie crust. In medium bowl, beat eggs slightly; beat in remaining filling ingredients. Pour into quiche dish.

     Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  • Salami & Cheese Panini

    • Ingredients
    • 8 slices of rye or sourdough bread
    •  4T Shard Hot Mustard
    •  1/2 head radicchio
    •  1/2 T. Balsamic vinegar
    •  1/4 hard salami
    •  1/2 lb. of your favorite Yaggi’s Cheese (We recommend our mild or medium Swiss)
    •  4T. butter

     

    Spread 4 slices of bread with mustard.

    Toss the radicchio with the vinegar, place on top of the mustard-spread slices of bread. Layer each sandwich with 3 slices of salami and 3 slices of cheese. Top with the remaining bread. Brush both sides of the sandwich with butter. Grill in a panini press until cheese is melted — about 4 minutes. Serve immediately.

  • Cheesy Broccoli Soup

    • 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.
