10 Recipes To inspire Your St. Patrick’s Day MenuCreating an all-Irish menu for St. Patrick’s Day is a great way to promote your restaurant. Traditional foods and your own take on old school recipes can be a big hit. Promotions should start early and be sure to let your customers know about delivery and take-out options. Here we take a look at ten recipes to inspire your St. Patrick’s Day restaurant menu.

Fried Irish Cabbage with Bacon

Cabbage fried in bacon grease with bacon.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Tyler treats brisket to a flavor-packed brine before slow-cooking it for hours in a Dutch oven to ensure tender results. Hearty root vegetables, cabbage and herbed butter fill up the rest of a plate worth the wait.

Vegan Shepherd's Pie

This vegan take on the classic is incredibly savory and filling.

Soda Bread

Is it really St. Paddy's Day if you don't eat some soda bread? For the ultimate holiday feast, pair this quintessential Irish side with some corned beef and cabbage.

Guinness Float

That very first sip of a Guinness is what inspired this quick and easy dessert. The rich, creamy foam that gathers on the top of a freshly poured draft made me think of vanilla ice cream. At that point, I knew I had to combine the two in a Guinness float.

Full Irish Breakfast

To be a real "full Irish," it must include bacon, sausages, and eggs, plus Fadge (Irish potato bread), or the popular Boxty (Irish griddle cakes). You can also add a few slices of soda bread or wheaten bread. Wash all of this down with plenty of tea, and you will be set for the day ahead.

Chocolate-Stout Cupcakes

These Chocolate-Stout Cupcakes can be frosted and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to a day ahead. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day, decorate them with the hearts just before serving.

Pastrami Reuben Egg Rolls

Golden, crisp Pastrami Reuben Egg Rolls with Russian Dressing, made healthier by cooking in the air fryer or baking in the oven, taste so good!

Corned Beef And Swiss Mini Pot Pies

This easy pot pie recipe is a fun and festive play on a Reuben sandwich. Make it a meal with a side of veggies or a side salad.


Colcannon traditionally combines mashed potato and cabbage, but there are as many versions as there are cooks in Ireland. This one uses softened and crunchy savoy cabbage, as well as garlic and leeks for extra depth.

Grasshopper Bars

These chocolate and mint treats come out so gorgeous, you almost don't want to eat them.
