Do you love Shepherd’s Pie? Or Cottage Pie? It’s been a fave of mine since I was a kid. I have a recipe on my site made from ground beef, but the Shepherd’ Pie that will have me running to the kitchen (and the family running to the table) is this one: Shepherds Pie from Leftover Pot Roast.

Grandma's Refrigerator Pickled Beets

Grandma’s Refrigerator Pickled Beets

My Grandma’s Refrigerator Pickled Beets are a simple, classic pickled beet that makes just enough to fill a jar or two, depending on the size of the jar. Because Grandma’s Refrigerator Pickled Beets are so easy, you can just knock them out when you have a few minutes and there’s no compelling reason to make a bunch. You can pretty much just have them whenever you want them, especially these days when beets are available all year ’round.

McMullan's Irish Nachos

McMullan’s Irish Nachos

Happy St. Paddy’s Day!! I’ve actually been cooking Irish recipes all week, but the standout was these nachos os in the style of McMullen’s Pub, located in Las Vegas, Nevada. These are crispy, crunchy homemade potato chips (sub in kettle chips if ya want) loaded with two kinds of cheese, crispy, frizzled corned beef (or other protein of choice) And sour cream or use one of those Chip & Dip Potato Toppers like I did in my McMullan’s Irish Nachos!

40 Plus Recipes For St. Patrick’s Day

I’m already thinking about St. Paddy’s Day, are you? I bet if you love corned beef as much as I do, you might be! I haven’t decided yet what to make for this year; maybe another cocktail or two? Maybe a shake and I’m thinking about more ways to use leftover corned beef? In the meantime, here are 40 Plus Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day.

 

Some of these recipes are 100 percent, Irish, others Irish-American and a few are just native to pretty much all of Great Britain. And a couple of them? Just close enough! All are fun and delish – and if you like a little horseradish sauce with your corned beef, that’s here, too. Don’t judge! I am the Frugal Hausfrau, after all! 🙂

You’ll find some ideas for any leftover corned beef and leftover stew, so save a bit back, if you can and you’ll be rewarded!

Whiskey & Marmalade Glazed Corned Beef

Whiskey & Marmalade Glazed Corned Beef

I make the same Corned Beef & Cabbage every year. Year after year. It’s that good. (And every year I make the braised stovetop version of it, not the slow cooker version, although slow cooker instructions are on the same recipe. This year, though, I wanted a change-up. Something more sophisticated. And here it is, Whiskey & Marmalade Glazed Corned Beef inspired by the Silver Palate Book.
