Abt-solutely Delicious: St. Paddy’s Day Edition

There’s a little bit of Irish in everybody on St. Patrick’s day. For some it’s a time to don your green clothes, grab a pint, and hit the parade. For others, it’s a chance to host a party with friends and family. We’ve assembled three delicious dishes that highlight the almighty Guinness draught beer that are perfect for your St. Paddy’s day festivities. Not just a favorite drink on the holiday, the malty flavor imported from Ireland is also versatile ingredient when used for cooking.

While most will be drinking the delicious pint of the gods, you can curb their munchies with some Guinness-inspired snacks. We start with a robust barbecue sauce whose tantalizing flavors will pair with the meat of your choice. Then for the main course, a heavenly cheesy Guinness Mac n’ Cheese, followed up by a malty Guinness float for dessert. These snacks won’t leave you like a blind cobbler’s thumb, and it has been shown that Guinness is good for you, in moderation. We hope you enjoy these dishes and please have a responsible St. Patrick Day.
