Craving a delicious pub-style burger? You don’t have to go out to enjoy one! This mouthwatering meal is made with juicy ground beef patties, crispy bacon, cheddar cheese, and topped off with a flavorful whiskey aioli.

All of these ingredients are nestled between two soft and fluffy buns for the perfect bite. In just a few simple steps, you’ll be enjoying your very own homemade Irish Pub Burger in no time!

What you will need to make this recipe

  • 85% ground chuck – half a pound per person per the menu description
  • Irish cheddar cheese – I went with regular sharp cheddar because that is all that was available
  • Grilled onions – thinly sliced yellow onion
  • Irish Whiskey aioli – Jameson mixed with mayonnaise and garlic, nice and simple
  • Irish rashers, aka thick cut bacon – again, I live in the desert not Europe
  • Hamburger bun of your choice – I used pretzel buns because they looked really pretty

To make the whiskey aioli:

To caramelize the onions:

Heat one Tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and cook, stirring occasionally until golden brown…about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
