15 St. Patrick’s Day Recipes
This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time for everyone to go ga ga for all things green and Irish. If you ask me, though, it’s all about the food (and sneaking Guinness into everything). Bangers and mash, Guinness beef stew, Irish soda bread? I’ll take all of it, please!
One of my good friends happens to have a birthday on the holiday, so every year I make him chocolate stout cupcakes with an Irish whiskey ganache and a Baileys buttercream. Those cupcakes alone are reason enough for me to get excited about Saint Patrick’s Day!
And don’t even get me started on the Guinness. If you’ve never cooked (or baked for that matter) with Guinness, you’re in for a real treat. Ireland’s beloved stout isn’t just for drinking. It adds depth and complexity to sweet and savory dishes. It enhances the chocolate in a cake, much like coffee does, and when poured into a stew or savory pie, it does an umami dance with all the other ingredients. That’s why we’ve brought you 15 recipes (many of them containing Guinness), to get you into the spirit of Saint Patrick’s Day. From a unique take on the classic corned beef and cabbage, to some adorable shamrock Irish cream cookies, we’ve found the best of the web.
So whether you’re Irish or not, give one o’ these recipes a try on the 17th. We promise you’ll thank us!

Great collection! Will you share the chocolate stout cupcakes with Baileys buttercream that you mentioned as well?
Haha, I am never sold on the bangers and mash but all things dessert with a little extra booze has me jumping for joy!
I make a similar cupcake every St. Patty’s and my co-workers expect them now! I’ve wanted to try a Guinness float for a while now… just can’t bring myself to potentially ruin good ice cream and good beer.
Awesome list. We’re feeling Irish already
Great round up, I’m especially digging that steak and ale pie ;)
