This is yummy for St. Paddy's Day!
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.Sponsored By [object Object]
Fried Irish Cabbage with Bacon
Cabbage fried in bacon grease with bacon.
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.
Fabulous Fried Cabbage
A favorite old Irish family recipe for fried cabbage and it's so easy.
Looks similar to colcannon, but champ is native to the North of Ireland. It's made by blending scallions or green onions with creamy mashed potatoes. Great on its own, served steaming hot with extra butter which will melt through it. But it's also the perfect side dish for good quality sausages.
A quick, easier, healthier, and sweeter alternative to mashed potatoes. I first ate these at an Irish restaurant in Singapore and fell in love!Sponsored By [object Object]
While colcannon seems to be associated with St. Patrick's Day, I love the combination of potatoes, cabbage, onion, and bacon all through the cooler months of fall and winter! I attend an annual St. Paddy's Day party and this is the dish I'm always asked to bring...and I'm happy to say that the bowl comes home empty every time!
Cheesy Potato Pancakes
Delicious and cheesy, these potato pancakes are a huge hit with my 3 boys! Great as a side dish or for snacking! These travel well wrapped in foil for the lunch box. Can be served plain or with ranch dressing as a dip.
This is a recipe from County Mayo. It is traditional Halloween fare but good anytime! Kale can be substituted for cabbage.Sponsored By [object Object]
