Food Hussy Recipe: Quick & Easy St Patrick's Day Breakfast Punch & Cheesy Boxtys


Sometimes you just want to live it up on the holiday and St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner - so let's have some fun with a St. Patty's Day breakfast you can whip up in no time! 

First of all - it's a juicy little punch - it might be a little sweet for breakfast but hey - it's a holiday - enjoy it! 

It always drives me crazy to find recipes that make enough for 40 people when I just have two in the house. It doesn't mean that I don't want to have fun punch - or that I want to drink it for a month!

So I made a small batch punch recipe - it's perfect for a couple of people or even juice glasses for four and the ingredients are simple as well! 

Just mix together a 20 oz bottle of ginger ale, 20 oz bottle of lemonade, a little can of pineapple juice and a packet of lemon lime kool-aid. Shake Shake Shake and you're good! Fizzy, sweet and green - how can you get any more St Patrick's Day Perfection?! 

Well you can combine it with a Cheesy Irish Boxty for a fun festive breakfast! And this will be just enough for a couple people too - no leftovers! 

What's a boxty? It's a potato pancake - I jazzed mine up with Irish Cheddar cheese and topped it with a touch of sour cream, more cheese and chives. 

  • It's a tasty little breakfast! You can go the next step and have a fried egg and maybe some sausage - it's like a breakfast Bangers & Mash! 
(Side note: I had it for dinner tonight with bacon and an over easy egg - OMG - best dinner ever!!!)
