I am Irish. (Who would of guessed, right? Erin? My name actually means "Ireland Forever".) My mom is 100 % Irish and she grew up in a very Irish, South side Chicago neighborhood home. So, every year, we ate corn beef & cabbage for St Patrick's Day dinner. Ugh. OK! I know there is a long list of people who love corn beef and cabbage (the majority of my siblings included) Not me. After eating it year after year. Plain, corn beef and even plainer...boiled potatoes. I just got kinda sick of it. I also feel the same way of tomato soup...after eating endless bowls of it in my childhood on Fridays during Lent, I can't even look at a bowl of soup.
So, instead of corn beef, I made some chocolate glazed doughnuts and added green sprinkles for the holiday!
Just take my Simple Baked Doughnut recipe and add some yummy chocolate glaze to them.
Here is also a helpful link, just in case, you don't own a doughnut pan.
Have a Happy St Patrick's Day!
