My favourite types of recipes are those that have been passed down from generation to generation. The tried, tested and true babies that are found on ripped, stained, water-logged recipe cards. When I get my hands on them, I hold on forever. And that's particularly true for this classic dish - a traditional Shea family recipe that's well worth a taste! Oh, and there's more St. Patty's inspiration riiiight here!
