Ah, the humble cheeseburger. It’s a summer staple, a backyard barbecue king and a food that has endless flavor possibilities. It’s a blank slate ready for filling, topping, slathering and seasoning. This Double Whiskey Cheeseburger is a flavor powerhouse. Juicy beef with roasted garlic and of course, whiskey is filled with Kerrygold Dubliner cheese then topped with sautéed mushrooms, onions and crazy good whiskey barbecue sauce.

Not only did I double the whiskey factor with this cheeseburger recipe, I also doubled the cheese factor. Bite into this flavorful burger and you’ll find warm, melted cheese inside. Have you tried Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese Wedges? I’m all about these smooth, creamy little cheese wedges. I’m spreading them on crackers, on apples and on the roll of this burger. This juicy, cheese-filled, whiskey-kissed burger is absolutely mouth-watering, off the hook, messy, tasty and need to be in your life ASAP.
