Authentic Irish Fare For Your St. Paddy's Day Party

Shamrock and Roll With These Tasty Treats

St. Patrick’s Day is only a hop, skip and a jig away, so grab your shillelagh and let’s get this party started.

Saint Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, is best known for having driven the snakes out of Ireland. Nicely done Pat. I hate snakes, but I love snacks...

Whether you're Irish or not, St. Paddy's Day is a smashing reason to throw a party.

You could go the traditional route and serve all-things-green.

Like this green velvet cake.

Or, you could serve authentic-ish Irish food; a tastier choice in my opinion. Here’s a sample finger food menu with recipe links.



Corned Beef and Cabbage Spring Rolls

Salmon and Dill cakes

French Fries With Dipping Sauces

Mini Shepherd’s Pies

Banger Rolls (sausage rolls)

Blarney Puffballs

Irish soda bread

Sweet Table…

Baileys Irish Cream Cheesecake

Irish Apple Cake

Irish Potato Candies

Banana Cupcakes With Avocado Buttercream Icing

Wash it all down with a Black and Tan

PS How cute (and easy) are these green pepper Shamrocks?

And these shamrock chips made from spinach tortillas (cut out with a cookie cutter)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
