Last Minute St. Patrick's Day Food Ideas

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here!  It is the one day everyone can claim (or chooses to claim!) a wee bit of Irish ancestry.  Whether you wear a green shirt to avoid a punishing pinch or celebrate with traditional Irish flair, there is no right or wrong when it comes to the best way to have fun on St. Patrick’s Day.  If you are looking for some festive food ideas, check out the Irish-inspired recipes below.

Last Minute St. Patrick’s Day Food Ideas


Guiness® Corned Beef Recipe

Irish eyes will be smiling when this tasty, slow-cooked Irish feast is finished cooking.  It does take all day to cook in the slow-cooker, so be sure to get all of your ingredients ahead of time.  And yes, you do use real beer.

Irish Soda Bread with a Twist

Traditional Irish Soda Bread was very simply made with ingredients on hand.  This recipe adds a bit of pizzazz with raisins, currants, and caraway seeds.  Are you gluten-free?  Try this Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread instead.

Irish Stew

There is just something comforting about a hearty stew made from fresh ingredients.  This Irish Stew is not only tasty, it has a total of only 7 ingredients:  lamb, potatoes, carrots, onions, thyme, salt, and pepper.  Swap out the lamb for beef if that is more your style.

Classic Cabbage Rolls

Taking the mystery out of cabbage rolls is what this recipe does right away.  It is quick (well, as quick as cabbage rolls can be), delicious, and kid-approved.

Cheese Scalloped Potatoes

Potatoes are an Irish staple and this yummy recipe is sure to make a delicious side dish.

Top o’ the Mornin’ Lucky Charms Pancakes

We can pretty much guarantee that this would not be a typical Irish meal, but  it has infinite kid-appeal and will start the day off with smiles (and a slight sugar high).

Rum Raisin Rice Pudding

This easy rice pudding recipe packs a lot of flavor and traditional flair.  It takes than 10 minutes of prep time and can be served warm or chilled.
