Top 5 Traditional Saint Patrick’s Day Foods

Saint Patrick’s Day was celebrated this year on March 17. Saint Patrick’s day is known as a lucky holiday with small orange bearded leprechauns and four leaf clovers. Many Irish foods and drinks are popular on this national holiday. My favorites include Corn Beef, Shepherds’ Pie, Irish Soda bread, Colcannon, and Cabbage. Corn Beef is a brisket that is deeply seasoned and slowly cooked. Shepards Pie has a crusty outer shell. The filling consists of mashed potatoes, assorted meats, and vegetables. Irish Soda Bread is a slightly sweet bread with a hint of orange zesty taste. Colcannon is mashed potatoes and cabbage that have been cooked together and then mashed. Cabbage is a vegetable that is commonly seasoned with salt, pepper, and butter. These meals are typically for Saint Patricks day, but feel free to enjoy these foods any time!
