Chef John's Colcannon
Colcannon is probably my favorite St. Patrick's Day recipe. It combines the lovely, spring-is-finally-here-greenness of kale and leeks with the always alluring comfort of buttery mashed potatoes.
Mustard Mashed Potatoes
I recreated this recipe from some mashed potatoes I had at an Irish restaurant, but they also go great with German dishes. You can alter the amount of mustard to your taste.
Irish Zucchini and Potato Pancakes
This is one of our favorite dishes during Lent. This recipe can be made ahead and then kept warm in the oven for 20 minutes. Being Irish and German, I make potato pancakes both ways. Serve with sour cream, applesauce, and/or ranch dressing. The kids love the ranch dressing.
Striker's Potatoes O'Brien
I'm tired of buying this at the store, so I decided to make my own. In my opinion, this is the best way to prepare potatoes for a typical breakfast. This recipe lasts a long time in the freezer. Just pull the bag out of the freezer and toss as much as you want onto a hot pan or griddle. Add more vegetable oil when cooking if needed. Enjoy.
Instant Pot® Colcannon
No Irish feast should be without colcannon. Using your Instant Pot® you save time by not having to wait for that large pot of water to boil. Bonus is that there is no draining of the boiling water. Garnish with chives, if desired.
Irish Stuffed Baked Potato
A marriage of Irish colcannon and potato for a delicious version of the baked potato. It's a meal in itself or a side with meat.
Cheap Irish Colcannon
This is a college try on a traditional favorite. Sometimes you're too poor to get all the ingredients for colcannon. It's a good quick filler for lunches in college. I like to put some brown gravy in mine, too, for more flavor.
Boiled Mustard Potatoes
This is a side dish that my husband's family in the south has been eating with corned beef and cabbage for years. It's a great addition to this traditional meal. The potatoes act like a sponge, taking in the mustard flavor. YUM!
Old Irish Scalloped Potatoes
A simple scalloped potato recipe passed down from my Irish ancestors, using ingredients you have on hand.
