Recipe Box, Small Bites for Early Spring & St. Patrick’s Day

Spring has arrived in Alabama,

everyday we are seeing new buds, flowers, and blooms

and all I can think about is green and St. Patrick’s Day!

There are a lot of green recipes on my March Bucket List this month

but in the meantime, here are some favorites from the archives

with a nod to the Irish and greens of Spring

Just click on the highlighted recipe title

to go to the post with the recipe

One of my favorite things for St. Pat’s are these Garden Tramezzini

They are little tea sandwiches

with a spinach ranch cream cheese filling

and garnished with cucumbers and green onions

Cut them in triangles or little circles

and arrange the sandwich circles to look like a shamrock

and garnish with a sprig of parsley

Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or a garden party!

Asparagus, Mushroom & Artichoke Flatbread

can be cut into small squares for appetizers

or cut into wedges for a meal

3 Greens Flatbread, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, spinach

is another delicious way to serve greens

Asparagus doesn’t always have to be served as a side dish,

Asparagus Parmesan Fries are a wonderful low carb appetizer

Spinach and Artichoke Bread

can also be served as an appetizer or a side dish

and has the colors of St. Pat’s Day with green and gold

One of the first foods that come to mind

when I think of the Irish is potatoes

Red Potatoes with Spinach Souffle are quite a tasty bite

You could also fill them with broccoli

and drizzle them with cheddar cheese sauce

like this Broccoli & Cheese Potato Boat

The colors of the Irish Flag!

Have you ever had Potato Peel Fries?

They are so good,

and you can serve them with sour cream and chives

for dipping

Cheesy Chive Potato Crowns are bite size potato muffins,

they’re made with thawed frozen hash browns and baked not fried

I love to make seasonal snack mixes,

Lucky Leprechaun Snack Mix will delight any leprechaun!

Corned beef and cabbage is another Irish staple,

but you can make an appetizer version

Reuben Rolls

are made with crescent roll dough

filled with corned beef and sauerkraut,

baked and served with a dipping sauce

I also like to make Mini Reubens on party rye

so good with a bowl of Easy Crockpot Potato Soup

And let’s not forget something sweet~

Baileys Cupcakes will have you dancing an Irish jig!

Fill your month and mouth with green

and the arrival of Spring!
