A slice of pastrami, which I get from my local butcher shop. But you can also find it at any grocery store.
Pickled brussels sprouts represent the cabbage, which might be my favorite part of the skewer. They’re zesty and zingy, soaked in a spicy brine, plus they still hold a little crunch. You can find them in the condiments sections of a grocery store, or even places like World Market, which is where I got mine.
And pumpernickel bread to finish. This is a dark, slightly sweet rye bread traditionally made with sourdough starter and coarsely ground rye. It’s denser and heartier than a typical rye sourdough bread.
If you’re hosting a party for St. Patrick’s Day these skewers are a fun and unique way to pay homage to the best of Irish food. They’re so simple to make and can be prepared a day ahead of time, just add the toasts the day you serve. Pair them with a Guinness beer and you’re set!
Luck of the Irish Skewers
The best of Irish food in bite size form, on a skewer! The perfect St Patrick's Day appetizer that's incredibly easy to make.
Fabulous idea for St Patricks Day!
Do you use dill or sweet Cornichons? What kind of Pickled brussels sprouts? Dill too?? thank you!
Hi Jessica! I use dill cornichons. And I buy these pickled brussels sprouts. I’ve found them at World Market!
Thank you! So you use the mild kind instead of the spicy? I found dill pickled brussels sprouts but will probably need to go to World Market like you suggest if I need to do the mild or spicy.
Either works great, just personal preference if you like something with a little heat!
Pickled Brussels sprouts? There is such a thing? I must look for it! These Irish skewers are quite clever and I bet they taste wonderful!
Yes, pickled brussels sprouts are a must find! Which state do you live in again? They have them at World Market around these parts.
So many congrats on sending in the book! That’s a huge accomplishment. And these skewers? SO much yum.
P.S. This may be waaaay belated at this point but I am loving your redesign!!
Thanks Stephanie! Huge relief to have the book turned in. Left a note on your facebook page about Minnesota lutheran church potlucks with cheez whiz slathered rye + green olives ;) Appreciate you noticing the redesign – you aren’t late, I haven’t called it out yet because still working through a few kinks but feels nice and fresh! xo
Dang, I wish I lived closer to you so I could taste all this stuff. Sounds like my kind of food – and the Bloody Mary too.
Grandma, wished you lived closer too! I would definitely share :)
