How about Colcannon with Guinness stew - Recipe - Taste.com.au


Colcannon is traditional Irish although I don't think the stew is (think it is Australian concoction named for St Pat's Day). The stew will certainly heat well in the microwave. Not sure about the colcannon but shouldn't be too bad - no promises though.

Or this: Irish Fresh Pea Soup Recipe - The Foody (although I think it might be "Irish" for the colour only!)

Also, at a potluck, there are usually so many different things to try that people don't usually take a full serving, like they would at home.

I thought about Irish stew, but lamb isn't inexpensive, and you want a main dish. From my trip to Ireland, that generally involves pork (and not lean pork, like we have here), lamb or mutton, or fish. You could do a side dish of colcannon (mashed potatoes with kale and a ham hock). Traditional Irish food just isn't all that light in calories, though

Angie, am sorry I have no idea how to cook a main in a microwave. Wish I did.

You could make an Irish pasta salad, very traditonal, just kidding, but it will work.

Just cook the pasta in the nuker. Add some diced ham, maybe some deli corned beef, and cheese. The choice of cheese is yours. Also, a bit of diced onion, also green onions always work well. Red peppers or artichoke pieces can be added.

Think it would work. And it would be very tasty. Happy St. Patty's day.

Here are some more ideas: Party Ideas : St. Patrick's Day : Classic Irish Eats : Food Network

Auntdot, a stew or casserole could be prepared at home and reheated in the microwave. Angie, you could also use a crockpot for a stew.
