Serve These Traditional Irish Dishes on St. Patrick's Day
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day and feast on delicious Irish traditional foods! Start the festivities with a traditional breakfast, and then choose from a selection of Irish main and side dishes. And don't forget your Irish desserts.
Corned Beef and Cabbage
Treat your brisket to a flavor-packed brine before slow-cooking it for hours in a Dutch oven to ensure tender results. Add some hearty root vegetables, cabbage, and herbed butter to fill up the rest of the plate.
Irish Soda Bread
This easy-to-make Irish Soda Bread gets a subtle sweetness from the addition of orange zest and currants. You can serve this along with other main dishes.
Shepherd's Pie Potato Bowls
These aren't your ordinary twice-baked potatoes. Beneath that golden mashed potato top is a rich beef and vegetable filling. Compared to your casserole dish, these potato bowls are also edible.
Dublin Coddle Recipe
A coddle is a traditional Irish dish usually associated with Dublin and also as Dublin coddle. It is the comfort food of the highest degree—a hearty nutritious stew-like dish made from salty bacon, pork sausages, and potatoes. This food is known as a tasty one-pot meal that can be made ahead of time and then left in a slightly warmed oven, waiting to be eaten.
Baileys Irish Cream Cupcakes
These cakes can be made in advance and frozen, saving the decoration until they are needed. One way to make them extra special is to add some Bailey's Irish Cream liqueur to the icing.
Of course, St. Patrick's day celebration wouldn't be complete without serving Irish Stew. This comforting stew features tender lamb, hearty carrots, and potatoes, all topped off with herb butter.
