One of my “bucket list” dreams is to go to Ireland. Something about that country just calls my name. I’m certain it’s because I’m a red-head and my favorite color is green! Beyond that, I love the history of the castles, the spirit of the people and the idea that I might be able to talk a leprechaun into sharing his pot of gold!
While it may be some time before I actually meet a Leprechaun, I’m glad I don’t have to wait to enjoy great cheese and butter from Ireland!
Kerrygold USA was kind enough to supply the Inland Empire Food Bloggers with some of their delicious cheese and butters in order to have a “Pot of Kerrygold” Potluck Party for St. Patrick’s Day! If you haven’t tried Kerrygold products, you need to go straight to the grocery. They only use small farms in Ireland, with grass-fed cows, all-natural milk and centuries of experience to create their butter and cheeses. They are top-of-the-line delicious! We paired different beers (and hard cider) with Kerrygold Cheese and Butter to make an incredible line-up of finger-foods and treats for you to enjoy!

My recipe contribution to our potluck party were these Dubliner Cottage Pie Puffs. It’s a mini version of a Irish Cottage Pie, made with Dubliner Cheese, swaddled in puff pastry and brushed with Kerrygold Garlic and Herb Butter.
The flaky pastry is enriched with the herbs and garlic of the butter and combined with the cheese and veggie filling, it’s enough to make even the heartiest Irishman swoon!
For our potluck party, I made a bite-size version and paired them with a hearty Guinness Extra Stout beer. Just look at those gorgeous flakes of pastry and Kerrygold butter! I think I may swoon too.
Here’s the recipe so you can make them yourself. Keep reading though! There is a Pot of Gold Giveaway for you at the end of this post!
