New England boasts one of the largest populations of Irish-American heritages in the United States. As a result, many of the foods Americans think of as central to St. Patrick’s Day are dishes more customary to New England than Ireland itself. Corned beef and cabbage, for instance, which later became a staple of Irish-American culture, was at first favored by Irish immigrants due to its low cost. But whether it’s this traditional boiled dinner you’re craving, or something more adventurous like Guinness Pie, Yankee has the St. Patrick’s Day recipes to make your next holiday gathering memorable.
How can something so simple be so festive? That favorite standby, the English Muffin Pizza, turns Irish with the addition of green pepper shamrocks. Kids are especially fond of this St. Patrick’s Day treat.
