St. Patrick’s Day brings out the Irish in everybody, whether or not you actually are Irish. I am. I am Irish/Scottish and there are traditional foods I enjoy such as corned beef & cabbage and some others I do not, like blood puddings. Here are a few that I do enjoy that you can easily make at home to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

 
 

This is probably one of the most popular Irish dishes and can be found at most restaurants during March. All you need is a beef brisket (brined and boiled), red potatoes, carrots and cabbage. It's similar to making a crock pot stew.

Sheppard's Pie

 
 

I love Sheppard's Pie and we make it 3 or 4 times a year. It's very simple and filling. It's a casserole with beef, carrots, peas and mashed potatoes.You brown your beef, add in your carrots and peas until tender. Pour into a baking dish and top with mashed potatoes and sprinkle a little cheese on top and bake. This is a meal in its self but you can add the sides of your choice if you wish.

Irish Beef Stew

 
 

The only difference in a plain stew and Irish stew is adding in a little dark Irish ale, like Guinness. Add in 1 bottle of such beer and give your plain stew a little Irish kick!

Irish Soda Bread

 
 

This bread doesn't have to 'rise' and it also has currants or raisins. It's similar to a big biscuit. You need flour, butter, baking soda, salt, sugar, currants/raisins, egg and buttermilk. It's best when baked in a cast iron skillet. You can eat it as is or add a little butter and maybe some jelly and eat it as a dessert.

Irish Coffee

 
 

Irish coffee is simply coffee with a little added kick of alcohol. You can add and Irish cream like Bailey's or just a little shot of Irish whiskey and heavy cream with a teaspoon of sugar. Then you can add some whipped cream on top.
