Here’s a round-up of a few of my favorite dishes for Saint Patrick’s Day! Click on the titles to be brought to the details on how to make each deliciously Irish item, or just head to the bottom of this post to print out all the recipes and get cooking!
Traditional in flavor, perfectly moist and paired with sweet carrots, buttery potatoes and (of course) a heaping pile of cabbage. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this dinner on St. Patrick’s Day!
Bubble and Squeak
One of my kid’s favorites. Traditionally, this meal is made using leftovers from a corned beef roast or ham. I never have leftovers of corned beef or cabbage from St. Patrick’s Day, but that can’t stop me from making this one pot wonder that is delicious and full of homey flavor. I make it with ham – which is a great variation on corned beef if you happen to have family who aren’t big fans of the traditional Irish meat.
Leprechaun Rainbow Cupcakes
I manage to convince myself that since these cupcakes are made with spinach and applesauce, all the candy on top just doesn’t count. They are cute as a button and great for a St. Patrick’s Day dessert for the kiddos.
Bread Pudding with Bailey’s Custard
This is the dessert for the grown ups. Let the kids have their cutesy cupcakes, while you indulge in cream soaked bread drizzled (ok, swimming) in a smooth, decadent Bailey’s custard.
I’ll leave you with a little blessing for your week. The Lord bless you and keep you: The Lord make His face shine upon you. And be gracious to you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
