Happy St. Patrick's Day

I wanted the traditional flavors of St. Patty's Day but didn't want to cook a big hunk of corned beef brisket that we'd have to eat for days. These were perfect and super yummy. I used deli sliced corned beef but it would be a great use for your leftover corned beef too.

Shelly's Corned Beef Bites

1 Yellow Onion, diced
3 Green Onions, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1/4 lb (about 4 slices) Corned Beef, diced (deli slices or sub diced leftovers)
1/2 cup Swiss Cheese, grated
5 eggs
a few twists of Black Pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Saute onions till golden. Add garlic cook 1 minute more. Set aside to cool. When onions are cool mix all ingredients together.

Spoon into lightly greased (Pam works great) mini muffin tins.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Makes 24.

I served them for lunch with cabbage (boiled and then sauteed lightly)

and we're having a KILLER dessert later tonight but... I'll post that manana.

LOL. That was so Ryan Seacrest on American Idol "...and you'll find out after the break."

Our St. Patty's Day table...

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light. May good luck pursue you each morning and night. ~an Irish blessing.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Listening to: U2, of course, my favorite Irishmen. "Where The Streets Have No Name"

Speaking of U2, there was a funny You Tube about them on the David Letterman Show doing their own "Top Ten". You'll have to check it out.
