When it comes to St. Patrick's Day, it's often the drink rather than the food that takes center stage in our celebrations. Whether it's whiskey in a jar, green beer, or Irish coffee, there are themed drinks o' plenty for the festivities. When it comes to the food, however, it's usually a big helping of corned beef and cabbage and ... well, that's about all most people come up with for this holiday.
That's fine if you like it, but there are plenty who don't, or who would appreciate a little something different (or in addition to it) this year. Here are five fantastic Irish-inspired dishes to consider serving during your weekend shenanigans.
Not your traditional Irish fare, but these nachos are amazing. The use most of the regular nacho toppings, like cheese, sour cream, and salsa, but you swap the chips for potatoes. Spud heaven.
