This Saturday, March 17, the color green will flourish throughout communities as people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Often thought as a drinking holiday accompanied by corned beef and cabbage, Great Plains Communications is here to share some of our favorite recipes that step outside those guidelines a bit. Provided by our cable channel, Food Network, we have found recipes that the whole family can enjoy this festive weekend.
Green Pancakes and Hash
This recipe is a fun and creative way to hide some vegetables in the pancakes for the kids. They will love the bright green color and not think twice about the healthy ingredient behind the magic.
Easy Irish Grilled Cheese
Another way to use that green to your advantage, as you could substitute spinach for some of the herbs in this beautiful grilled cheese. It will be delicious and deceivingly healthy.
Rachael’s 30 Minute Shepherd’s Pie
