Free Lunch: Kerrygold Dubliner

Free Lunch: Kerrygold Dubliner

Editor’s Note: Please make sure not to miss the other entries in the Free Lunch series. All cheese used in Free Lunch was sent for free by the creameries themselves without any knowledge of how it would be used. Prior to talking about Kerrygold Dubliner,…

St. Patrick’s Day Kale & Potato Grilled Cheese

St. Patrick’s Day Kale & Potato Grilled Cheese

When an Irish creamery sends you a ton of free cheese and butter in late February/early March, it is their way of telling you, use their product to create a St. Patrick’s Day grilled cheese. It is a no-brainer in my opinion and that is exactly what I did.

A couple weeks ago, as evidenced by the photo below, Kerrygold not only sent me 7 different varieties of cheese, they also included 4 different varieties of butter. I had planned to make a non-holiday related grilled cheese so many different times but life simply got in the way. As the days passed, I realized we were so close to St. Patrick’s Day that I needed to make a holiday grilled cheese, just as I did last year. I needed to improve upon last year’s St. Patrick’s Day Irish Soda Bread Grilled Cheese and make something special. I succeeded beyond my wildest dreams and who would have guessed that kale would be included? Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day Kale & Potato Grilled Cheese

Promoting The Super Bowl Grilled Cheese

Promoting The Super Bowl Grilled Cheese

In 2011, I created the “Nachos & Cheese Super Bowl Grilled Cheese” and then just kind of forgot about it. I let it sit out there in Internet World for people to find on their own. Super Bowl 46 passed. Super Bowl 47 passed. No…

Kerrygold Kilaree Cheddar

I have a story for you, the reader. As everyone already knows, I have an unhealthy obsession of Kerrygold, which has continually been fueled by free coupons sent directly from the cheese maker itself. That obsession only increased in the past week. A week ago Wednesday, I…

St. Patrick’s Day Irish Soda Bread Grilled Cheese

St. Patrick’s Day Irish Soda Bread Grilled Cheese

I don’t want to seem like I have become an employee of Kerrygold, but when they make great cheeses and keep sending you free coupons, you kind of have to keep making creations (aka grilled cheese sandwiches) using their products. And then blog about them. For the world to see.

Recently, Kerrygold decided to send me, unannounced, “St. Patrick’s Day Party In A Box.” As you can see from the photo above, and here, they sent me ton of awesome St. Patrick’s Day party supplies, an awesome cookbook, as well as more coupons for free Kerrygold cheese. It was their subtle way of saying, “use these coupons to buy Kerrygold cheese, use that cheese to make a kick ass St. Patrick’s Day grilled cheese and then blog about it.”

Challenge. Accepted. With Irish Soda Bread. Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day Irish Soda Bread Grilled Cheese

Roasted Poblano Grilled Cheese

I have been a fan of Kerrygold cheese for as long as I can remember. Their sharp Cheddars and Dubliner are simply fantastic and up there with some of the best cheeses around. With that being said, I was extremely excited when I received an…

Kerrygold’s Ivernia Cheese

Kerrygold’s Ivernia Cheese

With a few days off from work and not much to do, I recently headed to Whole Foods hoping to discover some great cheese in the remnant basket. Unfortunately, I had no luck. There were a few small pieces of a truffle cheese but I couldn’t justify the $5 price tag for such a small piece of cheese. I felt that same way with a cheese that was on sale for $30/lb (originally $35/lb). The Whole Foods description was not very convincing nor was the lack of intriguing smell. I passed. Instead I decided on a cheese that I had never seen before (Iverrnia) from a company that I love (Kerrygold). I made the right decision.

Kerrygold's Ivernia Cheese
