Irish Recipes that Aren't Corned Beef and Cabbage

I realized what day it is, and remembered that St. Patrick's Day is coming up. Then, I thought to myself, "Do I have to make corned beef and cabbage?" Of course, I could ignore the holiday and make whatever I want if I weren't part Irish (I'm Rob Perini from the Clan Perini...I wonder if anyone gets that reference?) But, rather than racking my brain trying to figure out a fitting tribute that's less boring, I found this:

Irish Recipes For St. Patrick's Day That AREN'T Corned Beef And Cabbage | The Huffington Post

In other words, the above picture isn't mine (you can tell because it's properly lit and it looks tasty). I do have some potatoes that I have yet to make into something, and it seems that every recipe here uses them.

I did consider trying to make an exciting take on corned beef and cabbage. But, it's too cold in Michigan to leave the windows open to ventilate the house.

I don't make corned beef or cabbage because I don't like them, and of course, they aren't actually Irish. I'm going to make a real Irish dinner - pan-seared herb-crusted lamb chops, roasted potatoes and a salad (that last might not be traditionally Irish, but it goes well with the rest ). And I'll make extra potatoes for boxty. I made it for the first time a couple years ago; need to make it again.

That apple cake sounds good. Maybe I'll make that, too.

Corned beef and cabbage on March 17th is an Irish-American tradition. Nothing to do with Ireland at all.

BTW, that was our dinner last night. I make that dinner because I like corned beef for its other uses like hash or reuben sandwiches. I often buy corned beef on sale and make it later in the year not as part of a 'boiled dinner'.

Yes, that's what I said. A lot of people do think it's Irish, though.

That's what we did yesterday. Just enough corn beef left over for two sandwiches. We had three taters and just two carrots. The carrots were for me. I also tossed in a small piece of cabbage for me also. I bought a small CB only because I didn't want a lot of leftovers.

I might buy one on the 18th for the freezer. They will still be on sale.

A few years ago I created a St. Patrick's Day Brunch for the Amoretti Test Kitchen blog. Take a look and help yourself to any recipes you find interesting. All the recipes were made (by me) and served to the Amoretti employees on St. Patrick's Day. It took me 5 houirs and I worked my butt off all by my lonesome because my sous chef called in sick, so I hope you enjoy the fruits of my labor!

This looks absolutely beautiful...I love the idea of a brunch! My eyes immediately went to those spinach pancakes (need to find some Dubliner cheese!) Thanks for posting!

I wouldn't go as far as to say boiled corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes isn't entirely Irish.

The preparation and 2/3rds of the ingredients certainly are. It's just that the corned beef is American. In Ireland, a ham joint would have been boiled instead.

Also, there would always be 2 veggies with the potatoes (at least).
