Nothing says Saint Patrick’s Day more than cooking up delicious, traditional Irish recipes. Whether you’re hosting a little get-together with friends or just getting in the St. Patty’s Day spirit with a meal for one, you’ll love these flavorful dishes brought to you by Taste of Home.

Potato Rolls

Start your feast off on the right page with warm and fluffy potato rolls. Just a few basic ingredients, plus 20 minutes of prep time (leave extra time for the dough to) and 20 minutes of baking time, you’ll have about 45 rolls to savor on this special day.

Brown Sugar-Glazed Baby Carrots

While the cooking duration for these deliciously sweet and savory carrots is rather lengthy, the prep time takes just 10 minutes! Carrots, seasoning, butter, and brown sugar come together in this beautiful side dish – perfect for pairing with the next few recipes on our list.

Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod

Flakey cod filets, butter, lemon juice, and a flavorful blend of seasonings create a masterful, Irish meal you won’t be able to resist. While some Irish recipes involving fish can be on the meh side (we see you, salmon cheese spread), this meal will have even the pickiest of eaters craving another serving.

Seafood Chowder

A hearty, savory chowder is right up there with lamb stew on Irish scale. Shrimp, crab, a cream base mixture, peas, sautéed mushrooms, and cheese all unite in this incredible recipe. Serve with some Irish water crackers or your previously made potato rolls.

Stout & Shiitake Pot Roast

Another dish that perfectly pairs with potato rolls is this pot roast masterpiece. Beef chuck roast, stout beer (Guinness anyone?), root veggies, and shiitake mushrooms cook low and slow to create this incredibly flavorful dish you can’t pass up this St. Patty’s Day.
