8 Recipes for Irish Inspiration

Even if you don’t claim Irish heritage, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most festive holidays to celebrate. Not only is it a great excuse to incorporate beer and whiskey into recipes, it’s a great time to get your green on!

Traditional Irish foods include lamb and potatoes, of course, but step a little bit outside the boxty by adding Irish flair to other foods like bread, curry, and more.

Take a look at our favorite recipes that bring a little bit ‘o the Irish into your kitchen.
