When I was growing up, my parents made every occasion (including St. Patrick's Day) fun by making special festive foods and playing games. I carried on that same tradition with our own children and my students. It just wouldn't be St. Patrick's Day without this delicious casserole! —Stephanie Norton, Bettendorf, Iowa
This flavorful meal is a must for St. Patrick's Day, but great anytime of the year. While it usually cooks on the stovetop, a slow cooker makes it even easier. The recipe serves four nicely with enough leftover meat for Reuben sandwiches or other dishes. —Michelle Rhodes, Fort Bliss, Texas
THE comic strip Maggie and Jiggs inspired me to serve this meal. Whenever Maggie asked Jiggs what he would like her to cook, he answered, "Corned beef and cabbage."
My husband liked this meal, too, and I always enjoyed making it for potluck suppers and other gatherings.

This spin on stuffed potatoes makes for a satisfying meal. Serve with a green salad alongside it, and satisfaction's guaranteed even for those with the heartiest appetites.—Cyndy Gerken, Naples, Florida
