Recipe for St. Patrick's Day Irish Pie

 

St. Paddy’s Day found me looking for a recipe for St. Patrick’s Day. Making this savory tater tot crusted Irish potato, corned Beef and cabbage pie pleased everyone!

Somehow I combined a slew of Irish standbys and threw them into this concoction for one giant Irish surprise. It contains lots of corned beef and cabbage, some Guinness, plus some Irish cheddar with stout, and mustard.

You’ve got to have mustard with corned beef. Oh- and did I say it is all in a crisp potato crust? Now Manservant would have thrown a fried egg on top, but I didn’t let him.

This Irish Corned Beef, Potato and Cabbage Pie  is a lot like a corned beef hash in pie form. No blarney! Make this and you just might be dancin’ a jig!

 

Irish quiche with corned, beef, potatoes and cabbage

 

In my past, I’ve had plenty of Jewish corned beef and my mom used to bake corned beef each year to commemorate this great Irish occasion.

My kids never liked corned beef and cabbage, but they did build a few elaborate leprechaun traps. Somehow one of their teachers convinced them that leprechauns existed and if they caught him, he would lead them to a pot of gold. (I can remember thinking what a crazy teacher at the time, but it was fun to watch them get excited while building their trap.)

Being the great mother that I was am, I threw down those little green metallic, confetti shamrocks and even put shamrock stickers everywhere to show them that the leprechaun visited. Their traps were set off and no leprechaun was ever caught much to their regret and mine!

But back to corned beef and this recipe for St. Patrick’s Day. It seems that Jewish corned beef came by way of the Irish, because of the close proximity of both groups arriving during the height of immigration. Kind of interesting to know that corned beef is really an American Irish thing and even though Ireland has historically produced a lot of corned beef, most of it is exported.

A traditional Irish meal contains bacon or ham, not corned beef. It does have an interesting history though and if you want you can read more about it here.

 

Cabbage and corned beef pie

 

Spring will hopefully, soon be upon us and a sighting of green will be a sight to behold, at least in many parts of the country. Though I’m not Irish, I’m always happy to celebrate any occasion and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception.

Where I come from there was many a Ryan or O’Brien close by, and believe it or not, my parents  saw the need to send this Jewish girl to a high school where we were known as the home of the Fighting Irish. I wore the green plaid tartan almost every day!

This Irish style quiche is easily made with thawed tater tots, which happen to make a great crust.

After that saute the leeks, cabbage and onion. Then stir in the corned beef, which I bought at the deli. Deglaze the pan with beer and you have a perfect Irish recipe.

Then just like making a quiche, combine the eggs, milk and cream to make a simple custard to pour over the filling. Add in mustard to this and the corned beef mixture and honestly, I’m sure this is great St. Patrick day food!

But don’t forget the cheese. Irish cheese preferably. And oh yeah, this would be might tasty served with a beer on the side. Unless of course you are serving it for breakfast!

Need a good recipe for St. Patrick’s Day? I think this has you covered!

    Leprechaun traps! Yep – totally been there! My daughter’s kindergarten teacher was a marvelously eccentric, creative teacher and that year held many, many wonderful outside-of-the-box projects … including leprechaun traps! Allegedly, one of the groups in my daughter’s class ALMOST caught a real leprechaun (there was evidence – wink, wink!!!!). My kids continued making their own leprechaun traps at home for years afterward (and so yes, I am also well acquainted with things like metallic confetti shamrocks :D)! Anyway … I think this is the most unique, enticing recipe for corned beef I’ve seen yet (and high-five for working in some Guiness!!). 😀

    I sure like your all in one pie!! It looks really good and has all the things I like…well maybe not the Guiness since I don't drink 🙂 For sure, st Patricks day is celebrated here in the US with a lot more gusto than the UK! Growing up I never did anything or even really hear about it. It's not until I came here that all the green showed up. I guess my favourite Irish foods are probably the similar British things I ate growing up. I do love cabbage and colcannon, and the English version known as bubble and squeak. I do like corned beef and potatoes!! So, yeah, I like a lot of Irish food. I hope your mom is better, wishing her a speedy recovery. Fancy driving up to Broomfield for lunch one day? I'm cooking!

    Fun dish! I don't often do the whole corned beef and cabbage meal because it's too much (although I do love to do hash with the leftovers). This is a way to get all the great flavors I crave in a manageable way. Easy dish, loads of flavor — what else do I want? Well, I'm with the manservant: An egg (fried or poached) would have made a lovely garnish. 😉 Good stuff — thanks.

I never skip the soda bread part of it, however. 🙂 that would just be crazy. happy st. patrick's day to you!
