We’re only four days away from St. Patrick’s Day, so break out the bottles of Guinness and put on your green coloured clothes.
Of course you’re going to need some delicious food to help you celebrate. Here are five recipes to choose from.
Cottage Pie: Often, and incorrectly, called Shepherd’s pie by many, this meat pie is a classic Irish, Scottish, and English dish. It is super easy to prepare and tastes even more delicious the next day. You can prepare it day before and it also freezes well. I like baking it in a baking dish, but for a fun twist I love using individual (or one serving) sized dishes.
Spiced Up Cottage Pie: This versions of cottage pie has gotten a spicy and Mexican makeover. If you like a little bit of heat in your food you’ll really enjoy this Irish-Mexican fusion.
Bangers and Mash With Onion Gravy: A delicious traditional British dish of sausage (bangers) and mashed potatoes (mash). It is iconic of British working-class dishes and it is ubiquitous to British and Irish pubs around the world.
New England Boil Dinner or Boiled Smoked Pork Shoulder Dinner: This is not only a family favourite on St. Patrick’s Day but also an Irish-American meal enjoyed on this holiday.
Corn Beef Hash: If you are brave enough, or have simply forgotten to plan for St. Patrick’s Day and have no other options, then give this recipe a try. Or don’t. You’ll have to read the post to see why I’m not trying to sell you on this recipe.
Hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend. Enjoy the recipes!
