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
Here is a hearty meal that's perfect for two...or one hungry guy! It's great on it's own, or serve at breakfast with a few eggs. You can also triple the recipe and bring it to a barbecue as a substantial side dish.—Carrie Chaplin, Clendenin, West Virginia
Guests will enjoy dipping bite-sized bagel chunks into this creamy dip that's made with sour cream, chopped corned beef and a little horseradish. "I've taken this appetizer to many potlucks over the years, and it's always a hit," says Shari Stensrud of Cambridge, Minnesota.
"I was raised on a farm, where we had chickens as well as other farm animals, so ate a lot of egg dishes," recalls Kitty Jones of Chicago, Illinois. "We usually serve this simple omelet for breakfast with toast on the side."
