Classic St. Patrick’s Day recipes

Originally, St. Patrick’s Day was strictly a religious holiday where people went to church in the morning and then celebrated in the afternoon and evening. As St. Patrick’s Day falls during Lent, restrictions of eating and drinking were lifted to encourage participation in the festivities.

When we think of traditional St. Patrick’s Day recipes, Corned Beef and Cabbage is the first thing that comes to mind, but bacon was actually the original ingredient used in this popular combo.

When Irish immigrants in America found beef to be cheaper than pork, they replaced the bacon with corned beef and a new, Irish-American tradition was born.

Here are a few more popular St. Patrick’s Day dishes you might want to try:

If you’re looking for less traditional, try a dish that preserves classic Irish flavors in new and different ways.
