The St. Patty’s Melt {not just for St. Paddy’s Day}

St. Patty's Melt from Lemony Thyme

It’s St. Patrick’s Day!  How does one day draw in sooo many people?


AND that we’re a melting pot society…who wants to claim to be Irish at least one day a year :)

St. Patrick’s Day seems to span across continents, dialects, and generations.  We’re looking for permission to drink.  Beer.  And make Irish Soda Bread…so we can turn it into Patty Melts on St. Paddy’s Day.  That’s my theory.  And the St. Patty’s Melt was born.
