TheBetterHalf and I met our freshman year at Notre Dame. Needless to say, St. Patrick’s Day is a huge holiday for the Fighting Irish students! Unfortunately, it would fall over spring break sometimes – but our freshman year it didn’t and I still remember how much fun we had that day. There may or may not have been Baileys in everyone’s coffee during class that morning. Cheesy story for my Cheesy Irish Soda Bread (so bad, I know)…we first said I love you 11 years ago today! So St. Patrick’s Day really brings back great memories for me!

But enough about that – let’s talk about Cheesy Irish Soda Bread! And Cheese.

I am so excited to tell you that Kerrygold invited me to be part of their Loyalty Program this year! Each month, they will be sending me some of their awesome products to use to create something delicious in the kitchen. The March Challenge was “Bring the Taste of Ireland to Your Kitchen” – so perfect for St. Patrick’s Day! I used Kerrygold Dubliner cheese to make my Cheesy Irish Soda Bread.

If you are at all afraid of baking bread, Irish Soda Bread is the perfect solution for you. It is so easy to make – no yeast required! Just mix everything together, form it into a loaf, and bake! Simple and delicious. This version is bursting with cheese. The Kerrygold Dubliner adds the most amazing flavor – slightly sweet, slightly nutty. If you haven’t tried this cheese I highly recommend it!  And then I finished the bread with a little cheddar for a nice orange color.

If you are looking for something to serve with your dinner tonight, or for a nice snack, this Cheesy Irish Soda Bread is perfect!

Dubliner and cheddar cheeses are mixed into a traditional Irish soda bread recipe to make Cheesy Irish Soda Bread. So simple to make and tastes amazing!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pats
  • 7 ounces Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 ounces cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a cast iron skillet, or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and whisk to combine
  3. Add the butter, and use your fingers or a pastry cutter to mix it into the flour, until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the Dubliner cheese. Add the buttermilk and egg and stir until everything is combined - you might need to use your hands to do this. Form the dough into a round loaf, and place in the skillet or on the baking sheet. Use a sharp knife to cut a cross in the top of the bread. Sprinkle the cheddar evenly on top of the bread.
  4. Bake the bread for 35 - 40 minutes, until it is golden brown and the internal temperature is about 200 degrees F. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool a bit before cutting.

    Girl, this is how I want to eat my soda bread. If you go and stuff it with cheese, it’s right up my alley! I always buy the Kerrygold butter, but I need to try out their cheese, too. I hope you had a fun St. Paddy’s Day, Cate!

    WOAHHHH. This sounds incredible, Cate! I love that this week was full of so many Irish soda breads, and yours is top notch! I’m a sucker for cheese and bread. I wish I could eat both for the rest of my life. I actually told that to someone in spin class this morning, hahaha. You hit the nail on the head with this. Also… 11 years of love! I love THAT!
