Contrary to popular belief, corned beef and cabbage is not traditional Irish fare. But when the Irish came to America, they found that their beloved bacon was rather dear, while corned beef was a cheaper alternative. This dish is a truly beautiful, all Irish, alternative to the corned beef supper. This uses a whole piece of bacon, rather than slices. You may need to special order this from your butchers.
This is a beautiful cream of tomato soup, but with a very Irish twist: the use of Poitin. Poitin is basically Irish moonshine made from potatoes, usually at over 90% pure alcohol. If you don't have access to moonshine (Irish or otherwise) feel free to substitute vodka. Bear in mind that either way, the harsh alcohol cooks out leaving a unique flavour with this dish.
This is another very old recipe from my very old Irish recipe book. Although nettles are not as commonly eaten in Ireland today, this weed saved many a family during the famine. Make sure to wear gloves when handling nettles, and use only the leaves, discarding the stems and stingers. Bear in mind that the "sting" cooks out entirely!

None of your distracting broccoli to get in the way of this casserole. Just meat and potatoes--and, for crunch, potato chips.
Classic Irish comfort food. This potato and sausage (called "rashers" by the Irish) was a favorite of author Jonathan Swift. It's no Lilliputian meal, though, not with 2 pounds of meat and 2 pounds of potatoes.
