8 Recipes for Irish Inspiration

Megan Myers | Stetted

Even if you don't claim Irish heritage, St. Patrick's Day is one of the most festive holidays to celebrate. Not only is it a great excuse to incorporate beer and whiskey into recipes, it's a great time to get your green on!

Traditional Irish foods include lamb and potatoes, of course, but step a little bit outside the boxty by adding Irish flair to other foods like bread, curry, and more.

Take a look at our favorite recipes that bring a little bit 'o the Irish into your kitchen.

1. Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

This classic is made easy in the slow cooker. Relax and let it do the work for you while sipping on your pint!

2. Roasted Potatoes

The traditional, humble potato gets all dressed up for dinnertime.

3. Beef and Vegetable Hand Pies

Portable and filled with an aromatic melange of ingredients, these hand pies are tops on our list for a handy dinner.

4. Beer Bread

Beer makes your daily bread incredibly easy (and tasty)! It's a great side for our other Irish dishes, or just smeared with a layer of Irish butter.

5. Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie

Vegetarians shouldn't go without the fanatastic flavors of shepherd's pie! This meatless version is so good even carnivores won't miss the meat.

6. Whiskey Mussels en Papillote

Why mussels? Why not! Whiskey adds depth of flavor to this surprisingly simple recipe.

7. Green Curry Chicken

Sure, curry might not be Irish, but we go gaga for the brilliant shade of green in this dish.

8. Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

We couldn't end without one more potato recipe, right? Use this mashed tater recipe as the basis for colcannon, and stir in cooked cabbage or kale at the end.
