St. Patrick’s Day Recipes & Kerrygold Prize Winner

by Amber on March 16, 2011

A few weeks ago, I presented a challenge: create a vegetarian-inspired Irish recipe using Kerrygold butter or Dubliner cheese to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The brave rose to the challenge.

The winning recipe (drawn from my husband’s baseball hat) improvised on a classic favorite, Shepard’s Pie, to create a veggie-filled and delightfully cheesy main dish fit for a Leprechaun king. Congratulations to Ann at Sacatomato for winning a Kerrygold prize package bursting like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow with Kerrygold butter and cheese!

The runner-up (drawn second from my husband’s hat) was Hungry Girl‘s Cabbage & Apples recipe. She wins bragging rights instead of butter. You can find her recipe, and a link to all the contestants’ recipes, here.

Thanks to everyone who participated! I’m especially grateful for having more Irish-inspired vegetarian recipes to eat with my husband. And that’s no blarney!

Yippee!! I'm so excited. I'd really better get that 2nd fridge now to fill it with cheese and butter. Thanks Amber!
