St. Patrick's Day is next week! I've been thinking about all of the things I can make for this holiday, most of them green. While I never have any trouble coming up with desserts for this holiday, I do have difficulty coming up with soups, entrees, and side dishes. So I asked some of my favorite bloggers to share their recipes for St. Patrick's Day! This round up originally posted in March 2014.
Breads and Soups:
There are so many delicious breads and soups for St. Patrick's Day. I'm starting with these as they can be used as an appetizer, a side dish, or simply the Irish item to add to your St. Patrick's Day menu.
I have the traditional Irish Soda Bread but I'm also sharing Irish Soda Bread Muffins with Cheddar and Jalapenos. There's the classic Beef and Guinness Stew but I'm also sharing Potato Leek Soup with Shamrock Croutons as something fun and different.
Entrees and Sides:
Looking for a great Irish meal for St. Patrick's Day? These main dishes and sides are sure to tempt everyone's taste bud's! I've got several corned beef recipes, a tasty shepherd's pie, and even Irish bangers and mash!
For side dishes I'm not sure you can truly celebrate St. Patty's day without Colcannon. Plus we have Irish potatoes, sauteed cabbage, nachos, and more!
You know you can't have a holiday without the desserts! For St. Patrick's Day we have tons of chocolate and mint desserts, desserts with Lucky Charms in them, a few rainbow treats, and even desserts with Guinness in them!
My favorites in this group have to be the Black Midnight Cake with shamrock decorations and the Rainbow painted cookies. Of course the Thin Mint Truffles and Guinness Whoopie Pies are sure to be family favorites.
Let's be honest...can it really be St. Patrick's Day without the drinks? Whether you are looking for the typical Guinness drinks or Bailey's in your coffee I have the drink for you!
From Salted Caramel Irish Coffee to a Cookietini I can't get enough of these tasty cocktails and drinks.
