I LOVE this St. Patrick's day recipe! It's a nice change from the sweets and the soda bread and it looks absolutely delicious!

love those bowls - where did you find them?
    Becky Hardin
    Thank you! I'm 99% sure I got them at World Market. It was probably last year some time, but they might still have them!

I would love to try this recipe! Is there a way I could get a head start on it in the morning before I leave for work?
Heather
This looks so good! Do you have the nutrition information by chance?
    Becky Hardin
    Hey Heather, i don't currently have an app loaded to calculate that, but thinking of adding in the future if I find the right one :) My Fitness Pal or Best Food Facts are both great sites!
Karen
Delicious, and easy to make to boot! Definitely a keeper :)
Kathy Britt
I am wondering if I can prep everything the night before. Have you tried it? Just wondering if the potatoes discolor?
    Becky Hardin
    I have never tried it that way so I'm not sure! I think it would be okay but I don't know for sure. If you try it that way please let me know!
