1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup butter, softened

1 teaspoon of milk
1/2 cup shredded Cahill Porter cheese

1. Mix together flour, baking powder, mustard powder and salt. Place
in food processor.
2. Cut butter into flour and pulse until the consistency is that of breadcrumbs.
3. Add 1/2 cup of milk and Cahill porter cheese and pulse until it is

If you have any recipes to share for Cahill’s Plain Porter Cheese - or any of our cheeses – let us know.
In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, we asked several cheese lovers to show us how they decided to enjoy Cahill’s Irish Plain Porter Cheese in March.
Cahill’s is known in Ireland as “The Crown Jewel of Irish Gourmet Cheese.” Nestled in the beautiful heartland of County Limerick, stands Cahill’s farm. For three generations Cahill’s has been hand-crafting award-winning, artisan farmhouse cheeses to closely guarded family recipes, using only the highest quality, local, farm-fresh and 100% natural ingredients. Each small batch of Cahill’s cheese is made according to ancient Irish traditions.
Cahill’s Plain Porter Cheese is the original, definitive Irish Porter Cheese. Pure Irish Cheddar is mixed with dark porter, brewed by the Cahill family to a traditional Irish recipe, to create a dramatically stunning marbled cheese with a lovely earthy aroma.
Cindy and Lori decided Cahill’s Porter Cheese would be a perfect offering at their Book Club. Lori writes, “The porter cheddar was enjoyed by all with many surprised by its mild flavor. The marbled appearance had us expecting a stronger flavor. Most described it as mild, creamy and smooth with a rich buttery undertone. I thought sweet grapes and sliced apple brought out the flair even more. No stout drinkers at book club, but it was enjoyed with both red and white wine. I even had it melted in a quesadilla at home! Yummy!”
Samantha created an Egg on Grilled Porter Cheese sandwich for which her husband is now forever grateful.
And Rebecca created: Cahill’s Porter Cheddar Bread. Her recipe is as follows:
3 cups all purpose flour
2 t. baking powder
12 ounces Guinness beer
2 T. melted butter
¾ c. shredded Irish Cahill’s Porter Cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Butter a loaf pan and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and beer. Mix well. The mixture should be sticky. Fold in shredded cheese. Place into the loaf pan. Pour melted butter on top of dough and bake for 50 minutes.
