Hard Rock Cafe Created A Burger With Whiskey Bacon Jam And Guinness Beer Cheese For St. Paddy’s Day

HR-Guinness-Burger

With St. Patrick’s Day quickly approaching, we’re seeing tons of Irish-themed food items it restaurant menus. One that caught our eye is Hard Rock Cafe’s newest burger.

The Guinness & Jameson Bacon Cheeseburger boasts an Angus Beef patty that’s topped with Jameson Irish Whiskey bacon jam. It also features tomatoes and seasoned arugula drenched in a Guinness Stout cheese sauce.

Patrons can get the new burger with regular seasoned fries, or an upgrade that gets those very fries doused in Guinness cheese sauce and bacon. The burger meal is paired with Guinness Stout.

The Guinness & Jameson Bacon Cheeseburger is available now at all participating Hard Rock Cafe locations through April 10.

This Is The Bud Light Rape Joke That Got Them In Trouble This Morning

BudLight-Tweet

Earlier this morning, Bud Light tweeted something that caught the attention of, and drew outrage from, many readers. It featured a group of girls dressed in green for St. Patrick’s Day and seemed to suggest inappropriate pinching followed by the hashtag #UpForWhatever.

The social media post was deleted after staying up for two hours, but by then the damage had already done. Bud Light issued a statement of apology for the tweet.

A company representative told Mashable that they apologize to anyone who was offended by the tweet. They also went on to say that they do not condone any disrespectful behavior and that the tweet was only meant as a playful way to celebrate the holiday.

This, however, wasn’t enough to satisfy the many outraged fans of the alcohol brand. Many have since begun using Bud Light’s #UpForWhatever hashtag as a way to let Bud Light know how disappointed they are in the company.

Here’s How to Make Irish Cinnamon Rolls with Guinness, Baileys & Jameson

St. Patrick’s Day is the best! It’s the one day a year that I feel justified proving to everyone that I am, in fact, wearing green underwear. (Totally kidding, Mom, totally kidding.) And now I have one more reason to absolutely LOVE St. Paddy’s: Chocolate Guinness Cinnamon Rolls with Baileys and Jameson Cream Cheese Frosting.

Beer and booze for breakfast? Yes, please! It’s everything great about the Guinness, Baileys, Jameson combo that is so popular this time of year in one gooey and awesome morning (or anytime) treat.

 Chocolate Guinness Cinnamon Rolls 
with Baileys and Jameson Cream Cheese Frosting

 Ingredients

 Chocolate Guinness Dough

  • 1 (16 oz.) pkg Pillsbury® Hot Roll Mix
  • 3 T sugar
  • 1/3c cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1c hot Guinness, 120° to 130°F (I heated mine on the stove.)
  • 2T butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • Extra flour for kneading

 Jameson and Cinnamon Sugar Filling

  • 1/4c butter, softened
  • 2t Jameson
  • 1/4c brown sugar
  • 1/2c sugar
  • 1 1/2T cinnamon

Baileys Cream Cheese Frosting (adapted from Angie’s Pantry)

  • 4T butter, softened
  • 4oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3c powdered sugar
  • 1-2T heavy cream (milk will do in a pinch)
  • 1T Baileys
  • 1t vanilla
  • 1t Jameson

 

 Directions

 Cinnamon Rolls

  1. Grease 9×13 pan and heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine flour and yeast packets from hot roll mix with sugar and cocoa powder in large bowl.
  3. Stir in hot Guinness, softened butter and egg until dough pulls away from sides of bowl. Knead dough on lightly floured surface 5 minutes or until smooth, using additional flour as needed.
  4. Cover with large bowl; let rest 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together whiskey and butter.
  6. In another bowl, combine both the sugars and the cinnamon.
  7. Roll dough to 15 x 10-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface.
  8. Spread whiskey butter over dough, and pour cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
  9. Starting with 10-inch side, roll dough up tightly, pressing edges to seal.
  10. Cut  dough into 12 slices. (I use thread!) Place cut side down in prepared pan. Cover with a towel, and let rise in warm place (80° to 90°F) for 30 to 45 minutes or until doubled in size. (I usually just stick it on top of the preheating stove).
  11. Uncover dough and bake 18 to 20 minutes or until done in the rolled up bits.

 Baileys Cream Cheese Frosting

  1.  Using an electric mixer, cream together cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  2. Sift in powder sugar and beat until combined.
  3. Add in vanilla, Jameson, and Baileys 1-2T cream (as needed) and beat on medium-high until fluffy. (You can adjust the ratio of the Baileys and cream to the powder sugar for a stiffer or runnier frosting).
  4. Spread over warm cinnamon rolls.

 Optional step: Unhinge jaw, shove frosting covered cinnamon roll in face, and repeat.

Lots of ingredients and steps to get there, but lots of reward at the end. Irish I was eating one right now.
