So far all I've got Stew made with stout, Soda bread, and Mashed potatoes. Does anyone have any other Irish or even English ideas that would be good for a party? I don't want to do anything that you'd have to sit down to eat. The stew is heavier but it will be served in little party mugs. My grandmother is 2nd generation Irish-American so I have to live up!

Corned beef and cabbage!!

Great by itself or serve on a sandwich. I don't think it is an Irish dish, but more Irish-American.

Yes, it's Irish-American. I believe the cabbige is Irish, but I read the corned beef became an Irish-American thing on the upper east coast because it's very simular to Irish bacon.

How about Hinekin (SP) in those skunky GREEN bottles.

How about some Irish ballads (Clannad, etc) and such playing in the background???

I can email you some pics of my trip to Ireland if you'd like...

That stout stew is awesome. I'm gonna have to make that. I like to have a good Irish/Scottish breakfast before I get to drinking heavily. A little bangers and mash is perfect for a day of heavy drinking

I'd do corned beef and cabbage, but I already have the beef stew. I'm looking for stuff that you don't necessarily have to sit down to eat...

I think their sausages taste too much like meal (grain) and not enough meat in them...yech!!!

You could add cabbage to the mashed potatoes to make them Colcannon or green onions to make them Champ and either Boxty or oatcakes would be good finger food. We always go out to a local pub for breakfast on St. Paddy's day, they serve a traditional Irish breakfast. Can't wait, bangers, rashers, black and white pudding making me hungry now. I always make a Coddle for dinner that day, a recipe of my grandmothers but the stout stew sure sounds good too.
