St Patrick’s Day is an interesting holiday. There is a lot of history there and even that history is interesting. But we don’t really have a special dinner or meal for St Patrick’s Day in the US. Almost every holiday has a special meal but St Patrick’s Day doesn’t. Instead, we head out to community events or local gatherings to celebrate. Just because we don’t have a traditional meal doesn’t mean there aren’t traditional St Patrick’s Day recipes. In fact, you can really get your family in the mood for the holiday. All you need are some St Patrick’s Day appetizer recipes to get in the Irish mood.
Everyone is Irish in March but it is time we ate more like the Irish with some of the best St Patrick’s Day appetizer recipes.

St Patrick’s Day appetizer recipes utilize ingredients that are popular in Ireland. That means a lot of potatoes and a lot of beer. But that isn’t all Ireland has to offer. You can utilize so many different Irish ingredients like beef, cheeses, and so much more.

There also is nothing wrong with making twists on the recipes you already love. Even if they aren’t Irish recipes. For example, you could easily make avocado cups and the green from the avocado will naturally theme the dish. Don’t be afraid to go green, after all, it is St Patrick’s Day!
