11 St. Patrick's Day Recipes Right Here!

One of the best things about holidays (even low-key holidays) is the simple fact that good food is almost always a part of the celebrating. I love nothing more than getting together with my favorite people over a tasty selection of holiday treats. While corned beef might not be typically classified as a treat, you might think otherwise if you take the time to brine your own. Yeah, you can do that! Or if that doesn’t sound fun to you, I think the slow cooker version looks equally delectable. You can find the recipes for both of those, as well as a host of other St. Patrick’s Day recipes in the gallery below. Click through for everything you need to make your St. Patty’s Day celebration complete!

  • Shepherd’s Pie 2 of 11

    Shepherd's Pie is at the top of many people's comfort food lists. Since it's apparently an Irish staple, I'm totally on board with any excuse to serve it up.


    This version from The Appetizing Bite looks amazing

  • Irish Colcannon 3 of 11

    Have you made Colcannon before? It's basically simple mashed potatoes gone green with a little kale and some scallions worked in. Tasty!
