Walleteers’ Pot-O-Luck St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Walleters. FatWallet H.Q. is celebrating with an Irish Pot-O-Luck. Below are the lucky St. Patrick’s Day recipes Walleteers are sharing for today’s lunch. There appears to be a consistent liquor theme in the Irish recipes we choose to share or call Irish. With that, pardon my typos as I cooked my cake with Guiness.

There’s bacon in ’em.

Irish French Toast (Jeff S.)

So if you add liquor, it’s Irish.


  • 1 (16 ounce) loaf French bread

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 fluid ounce Irish whiskey
  • 1-1/2 fluid ounces Irish cream liqueur
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • confectioners’ sugar for dusting


  1. Cut the bread into 12 slices. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, Irish whiskey, Irish cream liqueur, and vanilla extract until well blended.

  2. Heat some of the butter in a skillet over medium heat until the butter is hot and the foam has disappeared. Press each bread slice into the egg mixture, then fry in the hot skillet until nicely browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Add more butter to skillet as needed. Brush each slice with butter, and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.

Again with the liquor. -Rita-, the RecipeZaar reciperian, tops this with a pineapple glaze…because you know, they see a lot of citrus in Ireland.

More liquor. This is more of a double-decker ginormous brownie than a cake.
