We've got our traditional go-to, but have you tried our biscuits or skillet version?
We can’t say enough about Irish soda bread — from pairing it with corned beef and cabbage to smearing with a dollop of Irish butter, it’s a must-have for your St. Patrick’s Day table.

Though these recipes are fundamentally similar (you can’t have soda bread without baking soda, after all!), there are minor changes — say, using lemon zest and walnuts or baking the dough as biscuits — that can make a huge difference. Bring on the Irish eats!
