St Patricks Day shamrock charcuterie board with vegetables, cheese, candies and cookies


St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, and starting early with your planning is always great! What about the appetizers if you've already planned the main course, beverages, and dessert for the holiday? If your guests are anything like us, they will want something to munch on before sitting down to a full meal. That's where our favorite St. Patrick's Day appetizers come in. 

If you want ideas for delicious finger foods to serve on St. Patrick's Day, this is it! You can't go wrong with any of these Irish-inspired recipes that are perfect for any get-together. Here are our top five picks:


1. Guinness Beer Cheese Dip

This is not your typical cheese dip. This awesome appetizer features your favorite Irish beer, Guinness Stout, in a gooey, flavorful, and unbelievably delicious cheese and garlic dip. Although my favorite is dipping with tortilla chips, there are many more excellent options, like fresh vegetables or pretzels.


2. Reuben-Topped Irish Nachos

Because the Irish love their potatoes, so why not? These Reuben-Style Irish Nachos feature crispy waffle fries topped with corned beef, sauerkraut, and a ton of cheese drizzled with the Thousand Island dressing. A fun appetizer everyone will love! 


3. Green Eggs and Ham Deviled Eggs

Get your greens with these festive deviled eggs that are so easy to make! Take the classic deviled egg to a new level using fresh avocados and chives to turn the filling of each egg green. Then, add thin slices of prosciutto to the hollowed-out egg whites and fill with the yolk mixture.


4. Irish Cheddar Bacon Jalapeño Potato Skins

Bacon Jalapeño Potato Skins make the ultimate party appetizer! They're surprisingly simple to make, using only a few ingredients. You'll hollow your baked potatoes, filling the insides with crispy chopped bacon, Irish cheddar, spicy jalapenos, chives, and parsley. When serving, drizzle some Greek yogurt or sour cream on top. 


5. Dessert Charcuterie Board

There are so many delicious options for a dessert board! This board can be filled with various green candies/cookies - mint chocolate chip cookies, pistachio macaroons, mint topped brownies, pot o' gold cups, our shamrock cookies, or leprechaun bait. Make sure to have fun creating this board!

Make your party the best place to be this St. Patrick's Day! What appetizers are you planning to make for St. Patrick's Day? If you don't know what to offer, contact us, and we will be happy to make you a St Patrick's Day-inspired charcuterie board.
