Irish-American Dining

BREAKFASTS

STUFFED IRISH TOAST
Apparently, in Montana, the Irish stuff things into French bread.

LUCKY CHARMS
Because not enough breakfast cereals are made with occult-shaped marshmallows and guarded by leprechauns.

APPETIZERS

IRISH EGG ROLLS
Irish? No. Irish-American? Perfectly.

FRIED LEPRECHAUN LEGS
Another Asian fusion innovation that Irish-Americans have absconded with.

FRUITS AND SALADS

APPLE MARY
The humble apple, Irish women, and early street food.

EMERALD SALADS
A food that seems to know neither what it means to be Irish nor what it means to be a salad.

SOUPS

BEER CHEESE SOUP
An American bar food with Irish beer thrown in, and that’s all you need to do to put it on the menu of an Irish pub.

MURPHY BISQUE
It’s really just cream of potato soup, but it could be so much more.

MULLIGAN STEW
Hobos and Irish-Americans can both enjoy this recipe.

WHISKEY TOMATO SOUP
It’s just good whiskey tomato food.

VEGETABLE DISHES

POTATO CASSEROLE
The lowly potato went to Ireland, and then came back to America, and then got weirder.

ROASTED MICKEYS
A classic, simple-to-make meal. All you need to do is steal a potato and light a barrel fire.

MEAT AND FISH DISHES

CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE
The definitive Irish-American food. But how did we start eating it?

ONION AND DRIED CODFISH
To the best of our ability to tell, the first food ever reported eaten in an Irish-American pub.

DESSERTS

BRAM BRACK CAKE
A traditional Irish and Irish-American Halloween treat with a strange secret inside.

IRISH BISQUE AND TRIFLE
The trifle, a well-liked dessert from the British Isles and Ireland, became a mix of packaged food and stale dessert in America, and was briefly rebranded a bisque.

IRISH CREAM MOUSSE
A dessert is good, but an alcoholic dessert is better.

IRISH MIST DESSERTS
In the middle of the 20th century, an ancient drink was reinvented in Ireland, and Americans immediately started using it to make sweets.

IRISH POTATO CANDY
It’s not actually from Ireland, but it is actually made from a potato.

LEPRECHAUN COOKIES
Nobody seems to agree what goes into these cookies, although probably not leprechauns.

DRINKS

GREEN BEER
Yes, we drink it, and, yes, we are happy to do so.

SHAMROCK SHAKES
A holiday tradition with a forgotten tragedy behind it.
