I knew I had one other post topic planned for this week. And, of course, I remembered as soon as I hit publish on last night’s post (and the mention of what’s coming up this week).
Do you happen to have leftover corned beef?
Then this one is for you.
It was a no-brainer, really.
I mean … caramelized onions.
And getting rid of a leftover.
Actually two leftovers, if you count the beer.
All in one fell swoop?
COUNT ME IN.
Even better? The fact that the recipe is for one sandwich. So the kids happily got their request of pancakes (made easier by freezing some homemade buttermilk ones late last week), and I got total comfort food.
To the max.
The only thing I did differently in the recipe was that I used far less Guinness than it called for. The original recipe said to use a cup. I used what was leftover in a bottle that was opened for an Irish Dubliner and Guinness Fondue I made on Saturday night.
Oh yes, we’re kind of chasing the cheese train here lately.
Particularly the melty gooey kind.
Which also means we’re chasing the walk-more-than-25-miles-this-month train too.
And by we, I mostly mean me.
The recipe also called for Cheddar. Although it didn’t specify a kind, I used Kerrygold. I mean, really. Irish cheese for an Irish-food-inspired comforting grilled cheese sandwich only seems natural, right?
And man, if you haven’t discovered the heaven that is Kerrygold cheese, you need to seek some out. I’m hoping they seek me out and ship me vast amounts of the stuff.
Because life can only get better with more of it.
(You can find the recipe for the sandwich right here.)…
