What are you eating for St. Patrick’s Day? It had better by corned beef and cabbage, or you might find an angry Leprechaun* under your bed.

And you should round out the meal with a well-poured half-and-half and some Irish soda bread.


Here are 15 St. Patrick’s Day recipes from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen that will help you get your Irish on. They include two recipes for corned beef and two recipes for the leftovers. (And we’re all Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.)
