St. Patrick’s Day Favorites!
Getting in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day is easy when you enjoy one of these traditional Irish foods! Made with ingredients that are all on sale, these dishes are sure to get some Irish eyes smiling!
If you’re looking for a picture-perfect appetizer to serve this St. Patrick’s Day, look no further! These potato bites spend more time in the oven then they take to prepare, making them a great choice to make ahead and pop in the oven when you want them. While they look fully loaded, this recipe keeps it simple with small red potatoes (on sale now!), ½ cup corned beef pieces, cheddar cheese, butter, salt, sour cream and that’s it!
When you read into the Irish history of corned beef, you’ll be surprised to find that, traditionally, cows were used less for food and more for the production of dairy products like cheese and butter. Bacon and pork products were more of a focus in traditional Irish cuisine! The reason corned beef and cabbage is so prevalent among Irish Americans is because it didn’t catch on until after they immigrated here. When they found bacon to be expensive, they found a salt-cured meat product made from beef brisket – corned beef – made by Jewish butchers. This more cost-effective option became common in the Irish American household from there on!
There’s nothing like making it yourself, and with this weeks sale on our USDA Choice Fresh Beef Brisket, it’d be a shame for you not to try making your own!
This recipe goes beyond your standard corned beef with the addition of a Guinness mustard. Made in the slow cooker, you’ve got a traditional Irish American feast all in one pot!
Few things are as Irish as a classic colcannon! This dish is a mixture of creamy mashed potatoes and a shredded green like kale or cabbage. With a relatively simple ingredient list, it doesn’t take a lot to make this delicious side dish. The best part? You can easily spice it up the way you would regular mashed potatoes with cheese, bacon, chives & garlic!
All you need is butter, sugar, flour, cream & a shamrock cookie cutter for these festive AND traditional Irish cookies! If you can’t tell, the Irish are huge fans of cream, cheese and butter, so these cookies are the perfect addition or finish to St. Patrick’s Day. While the recipe calls for an 84% fat Organic Valley European Style butter, our on-sale unsalted Kerrygold Irish butter is sure to do the trick!
