Irish Potato Bites
Just a few more days until we’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! I’ll admit I don’t go all out for the holiday but I sure do love A few good St. Patrick’s Day recipes. My guy always requests a traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner. Sometimes I put my own spin on it…hello Corned Beef Cabbage Rolls! The extra corned beef is perfect for making an easy St. Patrick’s Day appetizer of Irish Potato Bites.

They are easy to make, super cute, and tasty, little bites of corned beef goodness. You start by boiling small red potatoes until they are fork tender. Don’t over cook them because you want them to be able to hold up to being cut open and stuffed. When the potatoes are cooked and have had time to cool cut them in half and scoop out the middle. Save the scooped out potato in a small bowl for later. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of the potato (making sure not to go into the hollow part!) to give it a flat bottom to sit on.
Once all of the potato halves are scooped out take that bowl of saved potato centers and add to it 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of diced corned beef, and 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Press the mixture into each potato half and then place them on a baking sheet and pop them in a 400°F oven for 10 minutes.
When they come out of the oven you basically have one of the best potato skins you’ve ever had, filled with the flavors of St. Patrick’s Day! Add a dollop of sour cream on top and pop them in your mouth. They will be gone before you know it!
What you will need to make Irish Potato Bites:
- Melon Baller – This is perfect for scooping out the potatoes but if you don’t have one you can also use a teaspoon.
- Silicone Mat – Hate doing dishes as much as I do? Line your baking sheet with this and nothing will stick!
- Baking Sheet – Place your Irish Potato Bites on this baking sheet and you’re just a few minutes away from a delicious appetizer.
