  1. going to try and also add salsa/ground beef with taco mix

  2. We love them! Just like at our favorite Irish restaurant.

  3. Why do you soak hem in cold water?

  4. Awesome recipe! Different and delicious, thanks for putting this up.

  5. Looks great and I’m going to give it a try tonight. Irish is for the “Irish potato” used in the dish. Not the nationality of the dish. Google Irish Potato and you’ll see. :-)

  6. Made these and upped the bacon and used sharp white cheddar cheese instead.  OMG!!!  Absolutely delicious.  

  7. Very easy recipe and sooooooo good!

  8. These were very good. The one problem we had was it took 2 1/2 hours to make from start to finish. My husband is a seasoned chef and he still took 2 1/2 hours. maybe we can find a short cut.

  9. How many would this serve!

  10. Loved it and so did my 12 yr daughter

  11. I just made these and they were delicious!!

  12. Those look scrumptious! A must try just in time for St Pattys.

  13. Thank you Janette! :)

    • Actually, these are quite Irish , with a nod to Spanish cooking . The only thing I change is adding beef . Thanks!

  14. my brother-in-law makes these on the grill…awesome
