Colcannon Is the One Recipe I Make Every MarchRecipes
If you love creamy mashed potatoes, you’ll love colcannon, a traditional Irish dish. Keeping with tradition, we didn’t mess with the potatoes or cabbage, but swapped the plain melted butter that is typically served in a pool on top for fragrant browned butter. We just couldn’t help ourselves! The nutty browned butter is a wonderful warm contrast to the sharp green onions that get scattered before serving, giving this dish an easy, elegant twist.

In this version, thick chunks of chuck roast are seared and then simmered low and slow in a Guinness-spiked sauce on the stovetop.

What’s the Difference Between Canadian Bacon (or Irish, or English) and American?Skills
If you actually hail from Canada, may just think of this meat as bacon. If you’re from other parts of the world, you may know it as Irish bacon, English bacon, or back bacon. No matter what you call it or where you’re from, I think we can all agree that thick slices of this bacon make a mighty fine addition to breakfast, especially in eggs Benedict, perhaps its most common use in the U.S. But what’s the difference between this good stuff and American bacon?

St. Patrick’s Day Recipe: Red Flannel HashRecipes
Red flannel hash was an invention of the first New England colonists, but it certainly has roots in Old World cookery. It’s essentially corned beef hash, minus the corned beef and plus a few beets. If you’re looking for something a little different to serve up this St. Patrick’s Day, look no further! The quantity of ingredients in this dish aren’t terribly important.

The Best Butter Comes from IrelandGroceries
The American fascination with Irish butter may only have been spurred a few decades ago, but love for the Emerald Isle’s deep, velvety butter is nothing new. The English, for one, were mad about the stuff, necessitating the foundation of the Cork Butter Exchange and the so-called Butter Road, forged from the wheels of the horse-drawn carts that stalwart farmers traveled on for hours to reach the market.
