Whether it’s traditional corned beef boiled dinner you’re craving, or a warm slice of Irish soda bread for breakfast to cure your green beer hangover, this list of favorite St. Patrick’s Day recipes has you covered!
New England boasts one of the largest populations of Irish-American heritages in the United States. As a result, many of the foods Americans think of as central to St. Patrick’s Day are dishes more customary to New England than Ireland itself. Corned beef and cabbage, for instance, which later became a staple of Irish-American culture, was at first favored by Irish immigrants due to its low cost. But whether it’s this traditional boiled dinner you’re craving, or something more adventurous like Guinness Pie, Yankee has the recipes to make your next St. Paddy’s day gathering memorable.
