St. Patrick’s Day Recipes from Classic Lit

Posted March 15, 2016 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Holidays / 1 Comment


St. Patrick’s Day is coming up fast! Luckily, classic lit books (and some modern day classics) offer lots of potential St. Patty’s Day recipes. Here are some of my favorites:

Nothing’s more Irish than lamb stew, and this recipe is Katniss’ favorite food in The Hunger Games!

In Little Women, the March family’s cook, Hannah, is Irish. These savory turnovers are one of her signature recipes! 🙂


What’s St. Patrick’s Day without potatoes? These duchess potatoes from A Christmas Carol are an unexpected twist on an old favorite.


These Abnegation Pea Pod Fries from Divergent make it easy to be green!


Porridge, anyone? Miss Mary from The Secret Garden loves this delicious porridge with honey and cream!


Bread and Butterfly Cucumber Sandwiches: A quick, easy, green recipe from Alice in Wonderland


Any leprechaun would want to add these Key Lime Coins from Treasure Island to his pot of gold.


Need a pick me up? These coffee muffins from White Fang are sure to put a spring your step…and your jig!


Of course, everyone’s expecting potatoes on St. Patrick’s Day, so why not surprise them with these Roasted Carrots with Thyme from Anne of Green Gables?


The surname Mellark has a distinctly Irish sound to it, so it’s a safe bet these Mellark Family Cheese Buns from The Hunger Games are an authentically Irish addition to your meal.


Leeks are common Irish fare, and these “Leeky” Cauldron soup bowls from Harry Potter are my favorite way to prepare leeks.


Need a quick St. Patrick’s Day recipe? Prim’s Bail and Goat Cheese Bites from The Hunger Games are fast, easy, and green!


This Deeper ‘n Ever Pie from Redwall was originally developed for the creatures of Mossflower Woods, but I think the Irish would love its root vegetable goodness.


Try this truly Irish breakfast: Decadent oatmeal from A Christmas Carol made with authentic Irish steel cut oats, almond milk, and dark brown sugar!


What are your favorite St. Patrick’s Day recipes?
