I honestly feel like St. Patrick’s Day recipes are some of the best comfort foods for winter, which means that I decided to find a list of equally comforting and delicious, mains, sides, and fun desserts for you!
In the winter, I think it’s important to make each month special when things seem to be a bit dark and grey. And St. Patrick’s Day comes in to do just that for us in March. So check out these yummy recipes down below and let me know if you have any favorites yourself!
St. Patricks Day Dinner Recipes
The Best Shepherd’s Pie
I love shepherd’s pie and this one made in a cast iron skillet looks incredible! The perfect dish to serve as your main for Saint Patrick’s Day!
Fried Cabbage with Bacon and Onion
All three of these things seem like the perfect combo to fry up in a pan. Looking slightly carmelized, I feel like this is the perfect side for your St. Patrick’s dinner!
Dutch Oven Shepherd’s Pie
I think Dutch ovens are SO cool, and I think this is a great way to serve your shepherd’s pie if you want a different way to make it!
Corned Beef Tacos
Ok, if you want an alternative way to make the classic corned beef recipe for St. Patrick’s day, then I think this is it! It looks so good and flavorful! 😭
Guinness Beef Stew
I love stews like this. They’re hearty and when you add beer to the recipe, it gives it this deep wonderful flavor to the already savory and delicious meal!
The Best Corned Beef and Cabbage
This corned beef and cabbage recipe looks SO good and juicy! I mean, if you love the classics, then this is a great option to try for your St. Patrick’s day dinner!
Instant Pot Corned Beef
I thought I’d also include the option for an Instant Pot version of corned beef. If you want to cut the cooking time in half, then I think this is a great option!
Irish Steak Pie
Look at how cute these pies are! I mean, can’t you just imagine putting them down on the table for you and your guests? Also, they look so good!
I love sausage dishes like this, and this looks like a really filling and flavorful dinner idea if you’d like something authentic for a main instead of corned beef and cabbage.
St. Patricks Day Dessert Recipes
Bailey’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
I need to sink my teeth into one of these! I mean look at how pretty and delicious these look. I think they’re essential for your St. Patrick’s day celebration. 🙂
Baked Matcha Cheesecake
Ok, I really love matcha, and this baked matcha cheesecake looks so good. Also, I feel like matcha is a great alternative to mint when it comes to green-colored desserts!
Guinness Chocolate Cake
Yes, this is exactly what you and I need. Chocolatey yummy goodness to finish off our St. Patrick’s Day feast! I mean, don’t these look like the perfect thing to sink a spoon into?
Mint Chip Sugar Cookies
These are SO cute and look delicious! Also, a fun treat for the kids (and adults). No complaints over here. 😉
Guinness Chocolate Cake
I’m not the biggest cake fan, but this one does look really moist and delicious. Like I could see myself maybe having two (or more) slices. 😉
Cereal Milk Tartlets
These cereal milk tartlets look so cute and colorful! They really do look like a fun treat to have right after a big meal.
Pot of Gold Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats
Rice Krispy treats are almost always a crowd-pleaser and these ones look like a lot of fun to make… and eat!
Again, matcha-flavored desserts are so good, and another great alternative to mint when it comes to green-colored desserts. 😊
Loaded Leprechaun Mint Bark
I love desserts like these and this one looks like so much fun to eat! I would probably eat way too much of this if I had it!
Loaded Leporcon Popcorn
If you like sweet and salty, then I think this one is perfect! Or you could use plain popcorn if you’re not much of a fan of the flavor combo. 🙂
I feel like St. Patrick’s Day food should be so much more fun than what a lot of people normally do, and I hope this list of Saint Patrick’s Day recipes helps you make a fun and delicious spread for your big meal!
