Most folks celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a traditional corned beef and cabbage meal. Even on sale, corned beef can be very expensive if you are feeding a lot of people. Also corned beef can be tricky to cook if you are a first time cook.
These two great recipes can replace a costly corned beef and cabbage supper for your St. Patrick's Day dinner, or maybe you are just tired of corned beef and cabbage. This is a hearty soup with sandwich idea that may become a hit with your family. Homemade soup always tastes better and is less costly than canned, but you could really make this fast by using a good canned soup and just heating it up. Also the soup can be made in a crockpot. Just remember to add the milk and butter last and to let the soup cool a little so you don't curdle the milk.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to You and Yours from Me and Mine!
Yum! Both recipes sound great. I have bought the corned beef at the deli before but instead I have used sour dough bread and grilled the sandwich using swiss cheese. Sometimes adding brown mustard too. Really good. Thanks for the idea, because my husband does not like cabbage and I wanted to find something else for my St Patricks Day dinner.
