In the name of all that is Swiss and holy! These Irish Stout 3-Ways are guaranteed to get you (and your liver) through any St. Patty’s Day celebration. You can’t drink on an empty stomach, so eat a ramekin for dinner Saturday pre-mania. Then what the hell, indulge in another one or two whenever you wake up Sunday. Brilliant hangover fooooood.

Serves 6
*sub cheeses only if your supermarket is shit*

3 t butter
2 t chopped shallots
3/4 c Stout beer
2 c heavy cream
1/2 c Kerrygold Irish swiss cheese (grated)
1/2 c Kerrygold Vintage cheddar cheese (grated)
1/2 c Dubliner cheese (grated)
3 1/2 c creste di galli or large elbow rigate macaroni (cooked and cooled)

Chedd’r? I barely know ‘er! My girl friend Steph contributed some of the snappy phrases for my St. Patrick’s Day blog. Mass props! She’s so good I may need to have her visit my kitchen sometime…. Kiss my pasta, it’s Irish!

Ok, one more….. 3 cheeses are better than 1. There, I’m done.
