My wife and I were on a mission last night when we went to Winco to get ourselves a collard greens for the big St. Patrick’s Day dinner we are having tonight.
Apparently we weren’t the only ones.
It seems there was a cabbage shortage in Bozeman yesterday as we spoke to a couple who said they had been to a few stores before that had run out of cabbage. Fortunately, there were still a few left and we were able to take one together.
I mean, let’s face it, today is St. Patrick’s Day, and what’s St. Patrick’s Day without corned beef and cabbage, right? Surely, as Irish as Montana is, it has to be the favorite holiday meal, right?
According to our friends at Zippia.com, Montananese prefer something else. So if it’s not corned beef and cabbage, then what’s Montana’s favorite Irish dish? It seems we Montanans prefer corned beef hash for St. Patrick’s Day.
Corned beef hash goes really well with eggs and it’s a pretty popular brunch dish, oh, and it’s super simple to make. A quick Google search turned up a 5 star recipe from Simplyrecipes.com that should be easy even for a beginner.
Some of the other popular Irish dishes that will be served today are:
- Irish stew
- Guinness Pie
- Chinese dough
- Apple cake
- Coddle (sausage, potato pieces and whatever people decide to put)
- Colcannon (Irish mashed potatoes with cabbage or kale)
- soda bread
- Irish coffee
So, what are you planning to do on this St. Patrick’s Day? Do you have a favorite dish that didn’t make our list? Anyway, happy St. Patrick’s Day and may the luck of the Irish be with you all day and every day.
