St. Patrick’s Day Meal Plan

This week’s Meal Plan Monday is from Amy over at Savvy Saving Couple.

St Patricks Day Meal Plan

Can you believe that St. Patrick’s Day is already this week? Time is flying by super quick with the first day of Spring already this week as well. When I think of St. Patrick’s Day, corned beef is the first meal that comes to mind. My family enjoys corned beef so much that I find myself making it all year. I try to make a large batch so we have tons of leftovers which inspired some of these dishes.

Chicken Broccoli and Pasta Bake:  Ok, so I am sure you are thinking, “Well this is certainly not corned beef.” This is certainly true, but I figured I would throw in a non-corned beef meal idea for the week. This dish also incorporates broccoli which is naturally green so it is fitting. The flavors of this meal are similar to Chicken Alfredo, but in a slightly more convenient form that reheats well. 

corned-beef-and-vegetables

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Vegetables: I love slow cooked corned beef because it produces a tender, and flavorful cut of corned beef. The fact that I added russet potatoes, celery, onion, and carrot rather than cabbage was also a fun twist. By cooking this meal on low heat for 6-8 hours the vegetables and meat will truly complement each other. If you decided to use a larger cut of corned beef (either point or round) you can have plenty of leftovers which brings me to my next two meal ideas. 

Corned-Beef-Hash-Sandwich

Corned Beef Hash & a Breakfast Sandwich Serving idea: Homemade corned beef hash is one of them meals that my husband lives for. He could eat it every day for any meal because it is hearty and jam-packed with flavor. I love that you can literally use the very same potatoes, onions, and corned beef from dinner the night before to produce a lovely brunch the next day. 

Breakfast-Nachos-meal

Breakfast Nachos with Corned Beef Hash: Who doesn’t love nachos? Mix things up by adding leftover corned beef pieces, or some hash to these brunch favorites. With topping like bacon, sausage, corned beef, salsa, cheese, and even scrambled eggs, you can enjoy breakfast and leftovers in such a fun and unconventional way. 

Pistachio-cake-slice

Pistachio Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze: Now that you are likely ready for dessert, I have the perfect choice! This moist Pistachio cake is made with extra pudding in the mix for a tasty and festive treat that is sure to make your friends smile. Glazed with lemon and cream cheese; this is sure to be a hit! 

What are some of your St. Patrick’s Day traditions?
