6 Favorite St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

6 Favorite St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

Unexpectedly delicious: FAVORITE ST PATRICK'S DAY RECIPES | @tspcurry

We can’t help ourselves.

We get pretty excited about St. Patrick’s Day around here…so much so that over the years we’ve cooked up a pretty long and fun list of St. Patrick’s Day recipes.

And we’re not even Irish (well, I have a wee-bit of Irish blood in me).

So this year, we gathered all our ‘Irish eats’ in one spot. And since one of our favorite things to do with friends… is to sit around and talk food, and share recipes – let us know what ‘Irish eats’ you’re cooking up.. be it from Pinterest, a cookbook, Yummly….or our ‘Favorites’ list below. Please feel free to share your links in the comments below!

Mint Chocolate Guinness Ice Cream Shooters

Mint Chocolate Guinness Ice Cream Shooters | @tspbasil @tspcurry

I serve this super-easy dessert all year round. Friends who came for dinner last month loved the yummy, surprising combo of Guinness poured over ice cream (and if you don’t have time for homemade chocolate sauce, use good-quality purchased sauce; my fave: King’s Cupboard Espresso Chocolate Sauce from my home state of Montana.)

Cheddar and Irish Beer Fondue

My fondness for fondue has been mentioned before. This is my go-to recipe. My aunt even requested it to celebrate her 72nd-birthday!

Beer Marinated Oven Baked Crispy Fries

Beer Marinated Baked Fries | @tspcurry
Now, the only way I do oven-baked-fries is to first quickly marinate in beer. The kids can’t taste the beer, but they love how crispy, crunchy it makes the fries.

Maple Bacon Scones

Maple Bacon Scones | @tspcurry

This easy scone recipe includes one very important step: Make Pecan Praline Candied Bacon first. (It’s as easy as baking bacon topped with pecans and brown sugar.) It’s really, really good.6 Favorite St Patrick's Day Recipes you've never tried via @tspcurry Click To Tweet

Riesling Braised Red Cabbage and Corn

Riesling Braised Cabbage and corn with Rosemary | @tspcurry

Leaning to the German side of the Pond…but still cabbage….which is on sale everwhere right now. (: And it’s our most popular cabbage recipe – thanks to a listing on Greatist for  Awesome Cabbage Recipes You’ve Never Tried Before – which we were pretty excited about.

Roasted Cabbage Wedge Salad

THE recipe that transformed Deanna from a non-cabbage fan to a surprise enthusiast. #EnoughSaid

Now it’s YOUR turn. What ‘Irish eats’ are you making right now? Do you make any of these recipes all year round?

I don't really make many Irish meals but that scones recipe sounds amazing. I just shared a Brussels sprouts recipe because I felt that was St. Pattys day themed with all the leaves. I do enjoy dark beers year round though ;)

Very good point Jess! I love greens ....and beer year round too!

I seriously could eat a plate and a half of those fries- they look like perfection! I have to admit, I have tarnished memories from St Pattys Day 7 years ago when I first met my husband (also my first try of corned beef at an Elks Club event- which left me ill for days!). So, suffice it to say, I stick to the carbs on the 17th! Those fries are right up my ally!

Hilarious story Elizabeth! Happy you met your husband on St. Patty's Day...and bet the Elks Club even makes for many laughs. If it makes you feel better, I got food poisoning from my own wedding reception food. As did many of the guests. ): But it makes for good stories now!
