Do you have a bit of Irish blood in you? Here are a few Saint Patrick’s Day Recipes you might try to celebrate the Irish. Corned Beef, Cabbage, Potatoes, Cobblers, and anything Green. 

Cutting Cabbage into Wedges

(Post modified with new photos on 2/28/23.)

Both sides of our families have delved into genealogical records enough to know where our families came from before traveling to America. We know that our families have a mixture of German and Irish decent that is probably 60/40. My mother’s maiden name is McKelvy, but there’s a lot of German blood mixed in on all sides. There’s probably some English thrown in there, too.

One thing I know for certain is we like sausage, cabbage, and potatoes. In my search for traditional Irish recipes, I found that there is a mish-mash crossing of recipes (English/Irish) (Irish/German) (Irish/American). Maybe you consider one recipe English, but it’s also found in Ireland. And many American dishes are not typical Irish fare, but rather Irish-American.

So with that in mind, I hope you will enjoy the mix of recipes I’ve put together below. Here’s to the Irish!

While not typical Irish recipes, many of these are what we in America think of for an Irish Saint Patrick’s Day Dinner. Along with Guinness beer. Irish Whisky. Or Irish Cream.

Irish Bread Recipes

 

Here’s a recipe to make for your family in celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day! It seems the main ingredients in traditional Irish Soda Bread are flour, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk. Most recipes have black currants and/or caraway seeds. It is a heavy, quick bread that is inexpensive to make and hearty-enough to fill one’s stomach at the beginning (or the end) of the day.

Sourdough Rye Bread is a wonderful recipe that our youngest daughter took to the county fair and won Best Bread with. It’s a hearty bread full of flavor from molasses, caraway seeds, anise seed, and cardamom. I love serving this bread with corned beef or on a Reuben Sandwich.

I couldn’t create an Irish Recipe post without including one with Irish Cream. This Irish Cream Cake uses a cake mix as its base and is flavored with miniature chocolate chips and Irish Cream Liqueur. The Irish Cream icing seeps into the cake and creates a sweet and crusty film on the outside–like a cake donut! It’s so good.
