People all over the world celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, especially places with large Irish-American communities. Everyone’s a little bit Irish on March 17th, so why not mix and match a few of our favorite Irish recipes and raise your glass to all things green.
Shamrock Smoothie: Start your day with a festive and delicious combination of kiwi, grapes, bananas, and yogurt. It’s creamy, sweet, just barely tart, and adorably garnished with a shamrock kiwi.
Bell Pepper Shamrock Frittata: This delicious dish is made with Yukon Gold potatoes and sliced bell peppers to cleverly create shamrocks! Create your own variation by adding more veggies for a vegetarian option or adding any breakfast meats you choose.
Bangers and Colcannon with Guinness Onion Gravy: This dish consists of pork sausages that are served on colcannon, an Irish form of mashed potatoes with bacon and sautéed cabbage mixed in, and topped with a Guinness gravy.
Corned Beef, Cabbage, Carrots, and New Potatoes: Here’s a simple supper for the meat-and-potato lovers in your family. A spicy-sweet honey and brown mustard dressing adds a tangy twist.
Irish Soda Bread: Soda bread with a twist. Yogurt has been used in place of the buttermilk and rolled oats have been added for texture. Cut into slices and serve with a flavored butter, jam or marmalade.
Irish Boxty Potatoes: Traditional Irish potato pancakes, also known as boxty, are made with a mixture of mashed and grated potatoes for a texture that’s part pancake, part hash brown.
Guinness and Onion Soup with Irish Cheddar Crouton: This onion soup is rich, hearty and flavored with delicious ingredients like Guinness beer, beef stock and dried thyme leaves. Topped with a toasted Irish cheddar crouton, this soup is sure to satisfy.
Boozy Beverage Choices for the Adults:
Lucky Charms Milkshakes with Marshmallow Frosting: A childhood favorite introduced to adulthood by blending it up, adding milk, vanilla ice cream and marshmallow vodka.
Guinness Ice Cream Floats: A scoop of coffee ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate turn rich, dark Irish stout beer into a celebratory dessert drink for adults.
Dublin Eggnog: This drink brings together two favorite flavors–Irish coffee and eggnog. Adding Irish whiskey, nutmeg, sugar and whipped cream – this is a perfect cool weather sip.
Whether you choose to feast on traditional Irish favorites like corned beef and cabbage, coffee, soda bread, potatoes, and shepherd’s pie or try a new spin on an all-time classic, enjoy your day!
