I first made these corned beef and cheddar burgers for St. Patrick’s Day. Usually I’m all about making traditional Irish dishes like Irish stew with a side of soda bread. But this year I was all about what sounded good, came together easily, wouldn’t heat up my kitchen and fed a lot of people. These Irish-inspired burgers were the answer.

The burgers were such a hit, I knew I had to make them again and share the recipe with you. There’s something about the combination of ground beef (lean, of course), corned beef and sharp white cheddar that makes these burgers extra tender and flavorful. Topping them with pickled red cabbage, arugula and spicy mustard hits ’em way out of the burger ballpark!

When I made these Irish burgers the first time, I shaped them by hand hoping they were about 1/3 pound each. The second time I tripled the recipe (it was a big party), so I used a kitchen scale and a burger press, which made the process much easier. I highly recommend stocking your kitchen with both!
