This weekend is Saint Patrick’s Day which means you will have your fair share of parties to attend. Bring one of these recipes instead of a six-pack of Guinness to impress your hosts.
Irish Soda Bread – This hearty soda bread is perfect when used in a sandwich with white cheese, smoked salmon, and thinly sliced red onion.
Gaelic Punch – For hot punches, young Irish whiskeys work best. Heat intensifies the tannic edge of older whiskeys; young ones stay smooth.
Shepherd’s Pie – This classic is perfect for a chilly St. Patrick’s Day.
Irish Stew – This hearty lamb stew is perfect for any day, not just St. Patrick’s Day.
Corned Beef and Cabbage – The quintessential Irish dinner.
Irish Coffee Cupcakes – The moist, delicate cupcakes are flavored with espresso and brown sugar and topped with billowy whipped-cream frosting spiked with whiskey.
Irish Coffee – The perfect ending to a St. Patrick’s Day feast.
Irish Potato Bread – These squares of crispy potato flatbread are similar to potato farls, the fried potato bread that’s a traditional part of the Northern Irish breakfast known as an Ulster Fry.
Colcannon – Creamy mashed potatoes with chopped cabbage and butter.
