Have leftovers? Corned Beef and Cabbage Rolls are the perfect spin on a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dinner when you don’t have a lot of time or need to use up leftovers. You can do all the prep work ahead of time and pop these in the oven or slow cooker for an easy St. Patrick’s Day dinner or “day after” meal.
We love St. Patrick’s Day. We both have a little Irish in us so we are legit, but how many generations ago was “true Irish”? I could count back on my side but I’m a bit too lazy right now. I know it way back to before William Penn came to America, back to when they hopped between England and Ireland. With that being said, we definitely eat our corned beef and cabbage once a year. I’d eat it more often if you could find it beyond March.
It’s about the only time of the year my husband will actually eat cabbage. Yay for tradition, eh? For years, starting before I ever dreamed I would become a foodie blogger, we made it a tradition to use Kerrygold Butter and go all out for our St. Patrick’s Day dinner, including finishing the meal with some homemade Irish Potatoes.
Since then I have had added Kerrygold Cheese to the menu, but who am I kidding? There’s usually a block of Kerrygold in my cheese drawer anyway. This year we’re going with a little Dubliner in our dinner. We had appointments this St. Patrick’s Day evening and weren’t able to actually sit down to a nice dinner so I changed it up a little bit.
This time we had Corned Beef and Cabbage Rolls. These are perfect for the main meal or as a way to use up any leftover corned beef and cabbage you have. Just make sure you don’t forget the Kerrygold Dubliner, please and thank you. It’s crucial that you use it.
