7 Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day other than Corned Beef and Cabbage

A kind of St. Patrick’s Day Mommy Brag first. My daughter’s Irish dance trophies (1st and 3rd) from yesterday at her feis in Dallas, Texas. She was so happy just to dance!

Our family’s holiday of holidays is coming up soon! We are an all out St. Patrick’s Day family. Our little world closed down the night before the St. Patrick’s Day parade and all the Irish dancing my daughter would do for 3-4 days at schools, nursing homes, and country clubs. We love corned beef and cabbage but sometimes we like the leftovers to make other things. Sometimes we make a corned beef brisket just to make other dishes with. We love hash, corned beef tacos, and fritters. Pick one for your leftovers from St. Patrick’s Day or try them all!

Reuben Fritters (click for link to recipe)

This recipe went semi-viral this week. I had over 7,000 hits in one day on it! It is one of our favorites. These crunchy little bites are stuffed with mashed potatoes, corned beef, and cheese. YUM!

Irish Nachos (click for link to recipe)

A simple twist on waffle fry nachos make these a delicious Irish version. Corned beef, cheese, and peppers give it a super flavor.

Corned Beef Tacos (click for link to recipe)

A super simple way to use some leftover corned beef is in tacos! Top it with coleslaw and a drizzle of Thousand Island dressing to amp up the flavors.

Corned Beef Hash with Eggs (click for link to recipe)

The annual Corned Beef Hash with Eggs is always a must in our house. Whether it has sweet potatoes or not it is always expected in our house at St. Patrick’s Day.

Reuben Style Hawaiian Slider Sandwiches (click for link to recipe)

These little Reuben Style Hawaiian Slider Sandwiches can be made with deli corned beef or brisket but we LOVE the brisket! Add the Swiss cheese and sauerkraut and they are super yummy.

Grilled Classic Reuben (click for link to recipe)

Nothing can ever replace a Grilled Classic Reuben with corned beef. Though the California Reubens (made with turkey) have become more popular here over the years nothing beats a Classic Reuben.

Twice Baked Reuben Potatoes (click for link to recipe)

A simple meal? These Twice Baked Reuben Potatoes can use up all the little bits of Corned Beef you have leftover. A simple baked potato mixed with Reuben ingredients and baked again is super easy and delicious!

  1. Are y’all Irish? We are and had a week of Irish food around St. Patrick’s Day growing up. These recipes look great. Thanks for sharing. I’m especially looking forward to the holiday this year, and I’m not sure why. Perhaps we all just need things to celebrate more as of late. Thanks again!

      My wife’s family is VERY Irish. Like 90% with a bit of English (they don’t mention that). They celebrate hard! I of German/Hungarian heritage was made Irish by them. 😉


      1. Haha. They sound like true Irish people with not mentioning the English part, and also by making you Irish! 😉

  3. Congratulations to your daughter! I remember when you first posted the corned beef fritters and thought they looked interesting. But wow, 7,000 hits in one day! That must have been fun to see happen and speculate on the cause of!
