St Patricks day Potluck Ideas for work

If you didn't already know, St. Patrick's Day is on March 17th this year! This St Patricks is the day when millions of people celebrate the patron saint of Ireland by donning green, consuming green beer, and consuming corned beef and cabbage.

If you're not into all that, there are other ways to celebrate the holiday with coworkers at work by bringing in some snacks or food items for everyone to enjoy together. Here are some ideas for how to get everyone involved in your office's St. Patrick's Day potluck:

Bring a tray to work and ask if you can pass out corned beef and cabbage, potatoes and carrots, or pasta and sauce.

Bringing a tray of St. Patrick's Day food to work is excellent. It can be done in any office, and if you want to avoid making the food yourself, take help from a friend or family member to make it for you.

The ideal way to do this is by making sure that everyone gets enough on their plate so they won't have any leftovers--and then passing out these items:

  • Corned beef and cabbage (or sauerkraut) with potatoes and carrots
  • Pasta with sauce from your favorite Italian restaurant

If there needs to be more room on your tray for all those dishes in one sitting, just put them out individually when people come into the break area after lunch or after work hours end at 5 p.m., depending on their time zone!

Make some corned beef or ham sandwiches for the office.

If you still need to make corned beef or ham sandwiches, it's time to get on that. The Irish love their corned beef and lamb--and we're not talking about St. Patrick being Irish (though he was).

You can buy it from the deli counter at the grocery store or make your own at home using a slow cooker and some recipe ideas below!

  • Make a batch of this delicious homemade version of corned beef hash with potatoes:
  • Ingredients: 1 pound ground chuck; 2 tablespoons fresh sage leaves; 1 medium onion chopped fine; two minced garlic cloves; one teaspoon of kosher salt;1/4 teaspoon white pepper; Pinch ground allspice; 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg; 2 tablespoons butter; 2 tablespoons olive oil; 3 large russet potatoes peeled and diced; 5 cups water. ; 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg; 2 tablespoons butter; 2 tablespoons olive oil; 3 large russet potatoes peeled and diced; 5 cups water.
  • Instructions: Brown the ground beef in a sizable skillet. Chuck with the sage leaves and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink. Drain fat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute longer—season with salt, pepper, allspice, and nutmeg.
  • Set aside on a plate while you prepare the potatoes. Melt the butter in the same pan over medium heat, then add olive oil. Add diced potatoes and stir to coat evenly with the oil mixture when the butter has melted. 

Bring potato skins with green onions to share.

Potato skins are excellent finger food and easy to make at home. If you don't have potatoes or green onions, skip these ingredients.

Potato skins are leftover boiled potatoes peeled and cut into long strips. The longer strips will hold their shape better than the small ones do!

You can use any sliceable potato for this recipe; I prefer red or Yukon Gold because they're buttery on the inside but firm enough for dipping in sauce or spreading on bread/bagels/etc.

To make your potato skins:

  1. Boil one pound (455 grams) of peeled potatoes until soft - about 10 minutes, depending on size (you want them to be soft enough to mash them with no resistance).

  2. Cut each piece into 8ths before slicing into triangles so they all look uniform when laid out flat side down onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper in an even layer across widthwise rows measuring 2'6" x 4'.

  3. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until golden brown - around 20 minutes, give or take, depending on the thicknesses used.

Bring over a dozen green bean casseroles, pot pies, macaroni cheese, or other comfort food.

If you're making the casseroles beforehand (which is a good idea), you can serve them hot out of the oven at your potluck dinner!

Pass out snacks like pretzels and nuts.

  • Pretzels and nuts are a good option for a potluck because they're easy to make and eat.

  • Almost everyone enjoys pretzels, a classic snack, so you can find people to eat them.

  • A smaller bowl of pretzels can be placed on the table with other snacks or appetizers, but if you want something more prominent (and more impressive), try making pretzel bites instead! These bite-sized pieces of dough are great for dipping into any sauce or spread--or just eating plain with butter on top!

Cook up some Irish stew (or make a big batch of meatloaf), then freeze it in containers for such an occasion!

If you have a big potluck on St. Patrick's Day at your work, consider making Irish stew or meatloaf for everyone to enjoy later.

Cooking this dish is simple and can be done in advance. Just cut up some potatoes and carrots and throw them into a stockpot with salt, pepper, and butter (or oil). Add water until it covers all the ingredients--around an inch or so above their tops--and then simmer until tender.

When this happens, take it off the heat and mash everything together with your hands until no lumps are left! Now freeze what's left so that when you need homemade comfort food on March 17th or any other day, you'll pull one out of the freezer!

Serve green beer (for the people who don't drink alcohol). It's delicious!

If you're seeking a fresh approach to celebrating St. Patrick's Day, consider serving green beer! Green beer is available at many grocery stores and can be enjoyed by people who don't drink alcohol. It's also great all year round because it has no calories or sugar!

If you want to try serving your coworkers this delicious beverage, here are some tips:

  • Buy some canned green beans (not too much) and ice them in a blender with some frozen pineapple chunks if desired; blend until smooth - pour into mason jars upside down so that the lids fit over them nicely without leaking juice from inside outwards onto other foods below.
  • Put lids back on top securely but not too tightly because otherwise, they could explode due to pressure build-up when heated up again later after cooling off the first time around which may happen if the too tight fitting lid doesn't allow enough air exchange between container contents itself plus outside world outside container itself.

Dressed in Green Cake

You'll believe you've found the pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow with just one mouthful of this rich, vibrant cake. This st patrick's day potluck idea for work is the ideal St. Patrick's Day dessert to complete your meal.

Baileys French toast

This Irish breakfast is the best option to shake things up and start your St. Patrick's Day off right. In this delectable recipe, Baileys is lavishly employed. It is beaten into the creamy custard and creates a dreamy cream sauce.

Fresh berries provide just the proper amount of acidic sweetness compared to that great stack of bread soaked in Baileys, keeping it from being overly rich.

St. Patrick's Day pancakes with shamrocks

These are just plain pancakes in the shape of shamrocks, but they're cute and yummy anyway. They have a brilliant green color from adding food coloring with an Irish theme.
