St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with an Irish feast? Considering I'll be 34 weeks pregnant on March 17, stuffing my face is really the only way I can celebrate. Head to your local grocery store and you'll see plenty of beer and baked goods smothered with green sprinkles, but this holiday is the perfect opportunity to try out some authentic Irish cuisine. These 10 traditional Irish recipes are ideal for St. Patrick's Day and yes, of course, they all pair well with a pint of Guinness.
If you know anything about Irish cuisine, you'll know these roundup features plenty of their holy trinity: cabbage, corned beef, and potatoes. If you're a fan of any of these things, I can pretty much guarantee you'll be re-making these recipes long past St. Patrick's Day. Whether you're hosting a St. Paddy's party or simply bringing Ireland to your family's dinner table, you'll be sure to thoroughly impress your diners with these classic Irish dishes. Pro-tip: Make sure you tell your family, friends, and party guests to come hungry, because most of these dishes are deliciously hearty. In other words, they're the best types of holiday food!
