There are numerous Irish appetizer recipes, including stuffed baby red potatoes, beer battered broccoli and farmhouse cheese and caraway soda bread pudding. All of these recipes are ideal for parties, holiday meals or just a delicious addition to the week night dinner.
The stuffed baby red potatoes are a flavorful and fun alternative to traditional potato skins with their bacon and cheese stuffing. These are appropriately served with sour cream or even ranch dressing, depending on individual tastes and preferences.
The beer battered broccoli is a fun way to serve vegetables. The recipe calls for frying in vegetable oil, but other types of oil can be used. However, cooking times may need adjusted to keep them from burning.
The bread pudding recipe is a bit more complicated than the others, but it would be great for those special meals or holidays. The recipe provides is actually two in one. The recipe for the soda bread needs to be made before the pudding is begun. The preferred serving method is to be put in individual ramekins, but if those are not available, a 2-quart baking dish or gratin can be used in its place effectively, making it a one dish appetizer.
