Looking for something other than corned beef and cabbage to make for St. Patrick’s Day? Try something different this year like patty melts or shepherd’s pie. We have found some of our favorite recipes from our cable channel, Food Network.
Ina’s 5-Star Irish Soda Bread
Forget all the kneading often required when making bread, this Irish soda bread is simple to make and delicious to eat. If you don’t have currants, try substituting raisins or your favorite dried fruit.
Classic Patty Melt
If you haven’t had a patty melt, as Valerie Bertinelli says, it is like if a cheeseburger and grilled cheese got married. You have the gooey cheese with the beefy flavor of the patty and savory yet a little sweet of the caramelized onions. A perfect dish to switch up your St. Patrick’s Day table.
Shortcut Shepherd’s Pie
With St. Patrick’s Day in the middle of the week, schedules are still in full swing and that means a shortcut meal might be what your family needs. Combine the comforting tater tots of a classic hot dish with the warm savory flavors of a shepherd’s pie and you’ll have this dinner on the table in no time.
