Our favorite “green” celebration is just around the corner! Celebrated for hundreds of years, St. Patrick’s Day certainly calls for a d’lish meal!
Slow simmered corned beef with tender carrots, onions and cabbage is always traditional fave. Colcannon is a favorite side dish, consisting of sautéed green cabbage, stirred into fluffy mashed potatoes. For another tasty side, serve it up alongside caraway-roasted carrots.
Soda bread is another traditional Irish staple. It is super easy to make, as it is leavened with baking soda instead of slow-rising yeast.
I like to dish my corn beef dinner with a variety of mustards. Try herbed mustard, cassis mustard or country mustard mixed with creamed horseradish – yowza!
For dessert, try a Guinness float: ice cold stout with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!
Have enough corned beef for leftovers? Perfect! Because after all that “green” beer, stouts, and Black & Tans , there’s nothing better the next day than a corned beef hash topped with a poached egg!

So a toast to St. Patrick’s Day and may the luck ‘o the Irish bring you all good cheer! -Kathy
