Corned beef is considered a staple on St. Patrick’s Day, but there is usually plenty to go around, and probably plenty to throw away. Save the leftovers and use them in these creative takes on classic appetizers—perfect for serving at your Ireland-inspired gathering.
Corned Beef Sliders
Replace your hamburger or chicken sliders with corned beef for a celebratory treat! The flavor of the corned beef pairs perfectly with the flakiness of the biscuit for a bite that also serves as a great breakfast sandwich or afternoon snack after your St. Patty’s party.
This recipe combines the best of two worlds for a truly satisfying meal. The buttery tortilla gives a whole new combination of textures to the traditional sandwich filling of corned beef and cabbage, with swiss cheese to bring it all together.
Corned Beef and Cabbage Egg Rolls
Put an Irish spin on this traditional Asian side dish. Stuff your egg rolls with corned beef, cabbage, and cheddar cheese for a unexpected blend of flavors. The crunch from the fried egg roll wrappers is a perfect contrast to the shredded beef and melted cheese.
