Well, it’s Friday, and as we go into this St. Patrick’s Day weekend, we thought we’d offer one additional Irish-themed recipe. This one is considerably simpler, faster, and more straightforward than the cake or lamb chop recipes we shared with you earlier in the week, and it also does not include any Guinness! These zesty little sliders are a great way to go for a quick lunch this weekend, or even a simple supper.
When it comes to food, there aren’t too many things more Irish than corned beef and potatoes. Where are the potatoes in this recipe, you ask? Why, in the rolls, of course! If you don’t normally buy potato rolls, you’ll be in for a bit of a treat when you first taste them. The overall flavor is not dramatically dissimilar to a thick white bread roll, but the consistency is much thicker and dense, making them heartier and more filling – an excellent counterbalance to the in-your-face flavor of corned beef and deli mustard. The original recipe called for “Irish Cheddar” and “Stoneground mustard.” While I can’t testify to Irish Cheddar (we use Tillamook, as you know!), I will say that stoneground mustard is a treat. We had deli mustard, a close cousin, so that’s what we used, and it was still quite tasty.
