Irish Recipes for St. Patrick's Day

Celebrate St. Patricks Day with recipes that nudge the traditional pot of corned beef and cabbage out of the spotlight. Here are a few of our favorite Irish recipes. My mouth is watering just thinking about the colcannon. I can hardly wait to make it again!

Scroll down to the bottom of the post for plenty of inspiration. From breads to soups, to vegetables and potatoes, to dessert and drinks, it's all included!

Baked Honey Mustard Corned Beef This corned beef turns out extra tender and juicy with a sticky sweet honey mustard glaze on top. Make more than you think you'll need, because even the pickiest eaters might be asking for seconds!

Irish Colcannon - Buttery mashed potatoes with bacon and cabbage is an unforgettable combination. There has never been a single bite leftover when I make this dish.

Reuben Soup - Corned beef, sauerkraut and swiss cheese combine all the flavors of your favorite reuben sandwich in a steaming bowl of soup.

Corned Beef Breakfast Hash - Corned beef, red potatoes and cabbage create a breakfast skillet that I look forward to all year long. I'm always tempted to make an extra roast, just for more leftovers!

  2. Great post Mary! We adore Colcannon and all things Irish! Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!

  3. I'm so hungry now Mary. And I'm loving your Honey Mustard Corned Beef; almost sinful to consider! Thanks for sharing my soup too!

  4. Love the Colcannon, looks super tasty!

  5. All these recipes sound awesome, Mary! I want to try that Reuben Soup!

  6. That honey mustard corned beef is my fav.

  7. My wife made the corned beef for our annual St. Patrick's day dinner. The best corned beef I have ever eaten. The only problem the recipe calls for a 3 or 4 lbs corned beef and there is no way you'll have leftovers and with as good as this corned beef is you'll want leftovers.
