Happy St. Patrick's Day!


In honor of St. Patty's Day, I'd like to share with you a great recipe by Andrew Kaplan I saw in the Everyday with Rachel Ray magazine that I'm going to cook up for the FiveMcSibes. It sounds like a tongue-waggin', lip-smacking holiday recipe for our furkids!

Green-With-Envy St. Patty's Potato Cakes
  Ingredients:
1 c. leftover mashed potatoes*
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 oz. corned beef, chopped into small pieces
1/2 c. frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
1/4 c. frozen green peas, thawed
1 T. chopped parsley
2 T. extra-virgin olive oil

Directions:
  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the mashed potatoes, egg, corned beef, spinach, peas, and parsley. Mix with wooden spoon to combine. Form into golf-ball size balls, then flatten with the palm of your hand. 
  2. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add the potato cakes to the pan and cook, turning once, until golden brown and heated through, about 5 minutes. Transfer the cakes to a paper-towel-lined plate and let cool slightly.
*Do not use mashed potatoes containing onions and/or garlic, which can be toxic to dogs and cats. Always check with your vet to be sure certain foods are OK for your pet to eat.

While your furbabies are enjoying their meal, kick back and enjoy this video of the FiveMcSibes havin' a wee bit o' leprechaun fun! And while you're at it, pour yourself a glass of green beer or an Irish coffee, and savor the flavor of the holiday moment! Sláinte!

  10. *drool.....so, when will the St. Patty's Potato Cakes be ready?? I'll take a bucket full, thank you very much! :->

    I don't understand how alcohol can be hazardous to our health. The Five Sibes look like they are having a blast! The only hazard I saw was the pup being held upside-down at the kegger, and even that looked fun! Silly pups!

    Congrats on your award from Brian! That is pawsome, and it is a super photo so well deserved!
