Easy, Stress-free recipes for a St. Patrick’s Day Party

 

St. Patrick’s Day is a day for everyone to be a little (or a lot Irish).

I love St Patrick’s Day (my maiden name is O’Bryan) but I don’t love getting on the road and driving.  So we usually host a St. Patrick’s Day party.

Whether Irish by birth, marriage, or choice, St. Patrick’s Day is a great time to gather the gang and throw a fun party with lots of green and Irish-inspired food.

Forget about hitting your local Irish pub and this year and host an easy St. Patrick’s Day get together. 

Browse my collection of Traditional Irish recipes, Irish inspired, and green food sure to make your party fun and festive.

All the recipes are easy to make (several slow cooker – set-it and forget-it recipes) so you’ll be able to join in all the fun.

Classic St. Patrick’s Day Menu Idea

Irish Beef and Guinness Stew with Irish Soda Bread and an Irish Sherry Trifle.

Serve with green beer and a little bit of Bailey’s Irish Cream for dessert.

 

Stress-free Tips:

  • Divide and conquer – Do you have friends or family with dietary restrictions?  It can be crazy to try and keep up with who’s eating Keto, who’s eating vegetarian or vegans, so don’t.  Just ask your guests to bring their favorite dish to share or ask them to an item like ice or snacks.  You have no idea how helpful this is for everyone.  Instead of wondering what to bring or last-minute calls on the way over everyone can be in on the fun from the start.  This way everyone has something they love and you have less work.
  • Prep ahead of time – You can pop everything in the slow cooker the night before then the next morning just turn them on.  If you are serving a crudites platter or charcuterie board. prep everything in the morning and cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until game time.
  • Your Crockpot is your Best Friend – Confession #1 – I have 3 crockpots + a little one for keeping sauces warm and an electric wok that can do double duty as a slow cooker.  Confession #2 – Sometimes 3 just isn’t enough and I borrow from friends and neighbors.  Confession #3 – I have figured out how to make almost everything in my slow cooker.  You can cook in the crockpot and then use them to keep everything warm.  If I grill wings I’ll pop them in a crockpot to stay warm.  Works perfectly!  So embrace a slow cooker or 3.

Cheers!

Slow Cooker Artichoke and Spinach Dip

I love slow cookers for the “set-it and forget-it” help they provide on party days.

I’m always looking for ways to adjust my recipes for the slow cooker. My Slow Cooker Artichoke and Spinach Dip is amazing. + The slow cooker keeps the dip hot throughout the party and no extra serving dish.

This is definitely a winner.

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage 

No St. Patrick’s Day Party would be complete without some traditional corned beef and cabbage.

Many corned beef recipes tell you to boil your corned beef, but my family has found that roasted corned beef is a much better way to cook your St. Patrick’s Day dinner.
