Quick Cauliflower “Risotto” with Asparagus + Cilantro-Basil Hemp Seed Pesto.
This Burger. This Jameson Whiskey Blue Cheese Burger with Guinness Cheese Sauce + Crispy Onions. You NEED to make this!!
This burger is what all burgers should be, over the top awesomeness. I know that is saying A LOT, but this burger is extra special. Just ask my mom, I think it was her favorite meal. Like maybe ever?
She’s kind of a red meat loving freak though.
I fully realize that this burger is a tad high maintenance. I mean, the awesome thing about burgers is that they are typically pretty quick and painless. Yeah, well I will be the first one to admit this burger’s got some baggage. But it’s delicious baggage, so in this case, I think having a little extra baggage is an A OK thing.
Just say right, cause if you don’t, I’ll argue it till death. It’s Wednesday and I feel like Wednesday’s should not be for arguing, so let’s just not go there.
I also want to put it out there that yes, I am well aware I am taking the Irish recipes to a whole new level this month, but I love being able to just get excited (even about small holidays) over simple things and have a little fun with life. I figure if you can do it, than why the heck shouldn’t you. GO FOR IT. Live life, have fun, be happy, right?
Wow, when I type things I sound so positive. This is not me in REAL face to face life. I should work on that. Easier typed than done.
But, but, but….this burger… SO GOOD. Packed with two cheeses, a whiskey glaze and crispy onions. This burger is huge, full of flavor and textures and a decent amount of liquor. What? Hey, it’s the Irish way.
The patty itself is really simple. Just good beef, blue cheese, salt and pepper. It’s all you need to make a good burger. Have I ever mentioned before that I grew up eating “the other half” of my dad’s leftover blue cheese burgers from The Rush Inn in Lakewood, OH? To this day, I think those are my favorite burger/memories. I could never eat much of anything back in those days, so I’d just eat off my dad’s plate, but even as a little kid, I LOVED blue cheese. I didn’t really know that I was eating moldy cheese, but it just tasted so good! Those burgers though, the ones from the Rush Inn? Well, let’s just say if you live in the area, you should totally go get one. I am not sure if they are still just as good, but for your sake I hope so.
Back this Jameson whiskey blue cheese burger though. So you have a blue cheese stuffed patty and then there is the whiskey sauce. Oh this sauce, I think this sauce is what makes these burgers SO DELICIOUS. Aside from all the cheese…of course. The sauce gives the burger a little kick of saltiness and tang. You can’t strongly taste the whiskey because you cook it down on the stove, but it leaves a nice hint, which is really all you need. If there is one element to this burger that you decide you do NOT want, don’t let it be this sauce.
Next up, the Guinness cheese sauce. Sure you can totally just throw a slice of cheddar on and call it a day, but cheese sauces are so much better. They are creamy, butter, cheesy and in this case, a little beer spiked too. Gotta love that.
The onions? The onions are just perfect. Crunchy, fried and perfect and this is coming from an onion – sometimes lover/sometimes hater (they have to be used in just the right way).
Make the onions.
Lastly, I know this seems like a lot of effort for a burger, but I promise it’s all pretty simple stuff…just a few steps, but YOU CAN DO IT.

You can, you should and hopefully you will!!
My son’s favorite cocktail, is the whiskey sour.
So i thought this is something we could do together or just surprise him by making it. For him…..
I hope he loves this recipe Craig! Let me know if you give it a try! xx
Tasted ok, but it in NO way takes only 1 hour to cook. It took me about 2. Also, the proportions of sauce and onions is completely outrageous. You barely need 1 onion let alone TWO for 4 burgers. You can also easily cut the cheese sauce in half and it’s still plenty.
Thanks for giving this recipe a try and sharing your feedback, sorry to hear you didn’t love it! xx
hi! would rum instead of whiskey work? thanks!
Sure, that would work. Let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx
delish! Love the flavor the wiskey adds to the sauce.
Thanks so much for giving this recipe a go and sharing your feedback!! I love to hear that it was a winner:) xTieghan
These burgers are delicious! Everything works so well together. The onions will add some prep time for sure but worth it when you have an easy night. I’ll be making these every March to get in the St. Pat’s mood 🙂
Awesome!! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad to hear that it was enjoyed!! xx
I made this last night for my boyfriend and his family and it was absolutely delicious! Hands down the best burger all of us have ever had! All of the sauces blended perfectly together. The only thing I added was bacon.. Will definitely be making this again soon!
Awesome!! I am delighted to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for making it! xxTieghan
