St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and while the holiday may be a bigger deal in the U.S. than it is in Ireland, it’s the perfect time to enjoy some delicious traditional Irish food.
Colcannon is a wonderful potato side dish for St. Patrick’s Day. Colcannon is a mix of mashed potatoes, cabbage and leeks. This recipe for Colcannon from Martha Stewart also lets you assemble it a few hours ahead of time and then you just brown it before serving.
Shepherd’s Pie is the ultimate comfort food – what’s better than meat, potatoes and veggies all cooked together in a delicious dish? This is a classic version of Shepherd’s Pie, but we also like Rachael Ray’s quick recipe for Shepherd’s Pie!
If you’re looking for an alternative to Corned Beef – try this recipe for Corned Salmon with wilted Savoy Cabbage. It’s a wonderful modern take on this classic dish.
And don’t forget to end your feast with an amazing mug of Irish Coffee. This is a super simple drink to make. Make a great pot of coffee. Grab mugs (glass ones if you have them) and add 2 oz. whiskey, 5-6 ounces coffee, a teaspoon or two of sugar and some lightly whipped cream on top.
How will you be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?
