St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up on March 17th and we’ve got 17 (get it?) great recipes for you. Check them out!

 

St. Patrick's Day

Corned Beef and Cabbage: This is probably the dish that most of us immediately think of when we hear “St. Patrick’s Day.” The twist on this recipe is that it’s made in your Instant Pot. Hello, 2019.

Reuben Egg Rolls: Looking for a whole different way to have corned beef and cabbage? I’ve got you covered with this recipe.

 

St. Patrick's Day

Colcannon: Here’s another Instant Pot recipe, this time for a yummy mashed potato and cabbage dish. If you want to make it the old-fashioned way, I’ve got a recipe for that, too.

Irish Colcannon Mac and Cheese: Did you look at a dish made of potatoes and decide it didn’t have enough carbs for you? Let’s be friends! Let’s also make this amazing recipe that blends mac and cheese with colcannon.

 

St. Patrick's Day

Shepherd’s Pie: You could also go with Shepherd’s Pie for St. Patrick’s Day, which has to be one of the all-time greatest comfort foods. Although, I’m not a big lamb eater, so I’d go with Cottage Pie, which is made with beef. They’re both topped with mashed potatoes, though, so you can’t wrong! Unless you’re my kid who hates mashed potatoes. All my friends say this dish is a family favorite, though.

 

St. Patrick's Day

Vegan Shepherd’s Pie: Well, I don’t know that this dish is traditional exactly, but if, like me, you’re not into beef or lamb, this vegan shepherd’s pie option may be just the thing!

 

St. Patrick's Day

Beef and Guinness Pie: My husband loves his Guinness Stout stew, and here’s something similar but in pie form!

 

St. Patrick's Day

Irish Soda Bread: Did you know that traditional Irish soda bread is just bread? It’s completely plain with no spices, seeds, raisins or anything else in it? I did not. So here’s a recipe for the traditional bread, as well as a recipe for a currant-orange variety.

 

St. Patrick's Day

Irish Nachos: Moving away from the traditional into the “inspired-by,” how about some Irish nachos? They’re Guinness beer cheese on potato chips—topped with bacon, of course. Count me in. Bennigan’s used to serve something like this years ago (I feel so old) and my husband and I loved them.

 

St. Patricks Day

Potato Leek Soup: Now, I’m a sucker for a loaded baked potato soup (mmmmm, cheesy), but I’m intrigued by this healthier potato soup recipe. And also cooking with leeks, which seem to be very popular in Irish cooking, but which I’ve never used.

 

St. Patrick's Day

Dublin Coddle: Here’s a traditional stew option for you non-beef people out there. This one’s got bacon and smoked sausage in it, plus potatoes and carrots. You can’t go wrong!

 

St. Patrick's Day

Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread: So, did Irish soda bread sound too boring, even if it was dressed up a bit? Well, then this bread should sound better because is chock full of flavor! Cheese, beer (and for St. Patrick’s Day it better be Guinness), bacon—who could ask for more?!

 

St. Patrick's Day

Chocolate Irish-Cream Cheesecake: We can’t forget dessert, of course. Check out this decadent cheesecake option. It’s probably not traditional, but it’s got Irish cream liqueur so we’ll let it slide.

 

St. Patrick's Day

Irish Soda Bread Pudding: I love bread pudding—it’s one of my favorite desserts. So make up some extra soda bread and use it in this delicious traditional dessert recipe.

Irish Scones: When I think of scones I think of England and tea time, but apparently they’re a legitimate Irish dessert. Serve them with fresh whipped cream and some jam.

 

St. Patrick's Day

Lucky Charms Cookies: Here’s one for the kids. (Although I don’t see any adults turning them down, either…)

 

St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day Puppy Chow: Speaking of cereal recipes, you may have seen we recently shared one for Cinnamon Almond Butter Muddy Buddies. Depending on where you’re from may also know muddy buddies by their other name: puppy chow. Here’s a recipe for a St. Patrick’s Day version of puppy chow. Yum!

Christina lives in Northwest Illinois with her husband, daughter, and two English Springer Spaniels. Before becoming a reluctant stay-at-home mom, she worked in a variety of customer-service-oriented jobs while dreaming of living in the lap of luxury as a housewife. Unfortunately, having a child threw a wrench in Christina's plan to do nothing but eat bonbons while lounging in the Jacuzzi reading all day. Now, she spends her time looking for fun activities and crafts for her daughter and easy-to-prepare meals for her family, while trying not to land the kid in therapy when she grows up. Christina volunteers at her local library, and does both volunteer and paid work as a sexuality educator. She loves to read, and to learn about--and share--new products and resources.
