Saint Patrick's Day Recipe Traditions That Wisconsin Loves

Posted: Mon-Mar-2020

Time to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a few Saint Patrick's Day Recipe traditions that Wisconsin loves, whether you are of Irish ancestry or not! It goes along nicely with our tradition to wear green, listen to Irish music, look for the pot of gold over the rainbow, wear a "Kiss Me I'm Irish" shirt, pick a shamrock, eat corned beef and cabbage, and drink a green drink or Guinness beer! 

Have some fun and get your Irish on with these green-themed dishes that are fun to make and eat! The first recipe we help you with is what to do with your left-over corn beef with a tried and true Corn Beef Hash and Eggs recipe. Follow it with a delicious green dessert of Mini Key Lime and Coconut Pies.

We wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day and Luck of the Irish To You!

Just before serving, in a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add the confectioners' sugar and extracts; beat until soft peaks form. Remove pies from muffin cups. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with coconut.
