St Patrick's Day Recipe Ideas

St. Patrick's Day means it's time to break out your best green outfit. But more importantly, it's also the perfect time to whip up some tasty Irish eats. Here are some of our favorite recipes and spices for a festive and delicious St. Patty's day celebration. Cheers!

Corned Beef

For many people, it's just not St. Patrick's Day without a heaping plate of this Irish-American tradition. And for good reason. This hearty meal is oh-so satifying and the homemade version is well worth the effort. Making corned beef is super easy, it just takes some time in the fridge to cure. Start this recipe a couple of weeks before St. Patrick's Day and you'll have an authentic dish for one of America's favorite spring holidays.

Irish Brunch

Irish Soda Bread

Start your day out with a slice of Irish Soda Bread. You can choose to make a sweet soda bread flavored with anise and raisins or a savory version with a blend of dried spices and caraway, rosemary, and currants. Both benefit from a healthy dose of honey butter slathered on every slice, and both go perfectly with a strong cup of tea - or if you like a little more “oomph” with brunch, try Cocoa Irish Coffee.


Perfect for adding to your Irish brunch or noshing later in the day, sausage is a staple of the Irish diet. Instead of store bought, try making your own homemade sausage for St. Patrick’s Day. It's easy, fast, and free of additives or preservative. Just season your favorite ground meat with any of your favorite Savory Spice sausage spices, seasoning salts, or spice blends. Frying Pan Pork Sausage Spice will give you a traditional sausage flavor that’s perfect with pork (of course!) as well as turkey or chicken. Homestead Seasoning is an all-purpose spice that's great with any of your favorite ground meats. If you want to experiment with some spice blends that contain traditional Irish flavors like caraway, thyme, and sage, try mixing Hudson Bay Beef Spice or Poultry Seasoning in your next batch of homemade sausage. For a vegetarian option that's still packed with classic sausage flavor, mix up a batch of our Quinoa Sausage Bites for the perfect party appetizer.

County Clare

Our County Clare Seasoning Salt is named after a region of Ireland that is well known for its rolling hills of corn fields as well as rugged, cliff-studded coastlines. The salt, made with onion, lemon zest, and thyme, is wonderful on corn, but pairs just as well with any roasted vegetable. It's also a tasty addition to the Easiest Savory Cornbread Ever. Try mixing some with butter for a savory spread for bread or melt some on top of broiled fish or grilled meats. When roasting a whole chicken or a turkey breast, rub some of the butter under the skin of the poultry before cooking to add flavor and moisture, and to help the skin turn a beautiful golden brown.

Ireland’s Most Famous Beer

Hearty Guinness Beef Stew

There is no Irish beer more well known than Guinness. While its thirst-quenching properties are well known, this dark stout beer is also a popular cooking ingredient. Incorporate this essential Irish beer into your cooking with recipes like our Hearty Guinness Beef Stew. If you like a little heat, then our Ghost Pepper Salted Guinness Pretzels are the perfect snack to pair with your St. Patty's day drinks. If you've got a sweet tooth, try our Guinness Chocolate Mousse which gets a hint of coffee flavor from the addition of our Baker’s Brew Coffee Spice.


You didn't think we’d forget about potatoes, did you? For something classic, try our Herbed Mashed Potatoes with one of your favorite herb seasonings, or go for Cheesy Mashed Potatoes with any one of our cheese blends. To add even more Irish flare to either, stir in some sliced green onions to create what’s known as an “Irish Champ.” Or spread some mashed potatoes on top of a hearty Shepherd's Pie (we even have a vegetarian-friendly version of this Irish classic). Beyond the mash, roasted potatoes are a popular Irish side. Try Salt & Vinegar Roasted Potatoes to add savory tang to a plate of Smoked Mutton Leg and or make a batch of Sweet Roasted Root Vegetables to add color and flavor to your plate of Corned Beef.
