It makes no difference if you are Irish or not it seems that everyone enjoys celebrating holiday. Here are a few St. Patrick Day recipe ideas if you are having a few friends over for dinner or perhaps just a fun family meal. Granted some of the recipes are listed just because they are green, but after a few beers it will make more sense.
For the main dish there are two different recipes for Corned Beef and Cabbage (http://find-
and one for Classic Beef and Cabbage Rolls. The recipe for slow cooked corned beef and cabbage is a complete meal with beef brisket, potatoes, cabbage and carrots all slow cooked in a delicious broth.
The two side dishes are Gratin Cheddar Potatoes (http://find-
and Green Pancakes for breakfast. The green pancakes might be whimsical but the recipe Gratin Cheddar Potatoes by Betty Crocker is absolutely delicious. Two different cheeses, Parmesan and Cheddar, plus onion all cooked in a heavy sauce make a memorable side dish.
There are three tasty green dessert recipes, Gluten-free Grasshopper Bars, Irish Cream Brownies and Key Lime Cheese Cake Bars. Perhaps no one in Ireland has heard of these desserts, but they are green, fun and tasty. The Key Lime Cheesecake Bars, recipe provided by Better Homes and Gardens, uses all low fat ingredients such as, graham crackers, gelatin, cottage cheese, cream cheese and whipped dessert topping. Yes all these ingredients are available in fat free form. The bars need to be refrigerated 8 to 24 hours, so plan ahead.
