Start March Off Lucky with Irish Bruschetta

Potatoes. Corned Beef. Cabbage. Beer. All things that make you think about St. Patrick’s Day!

But Chef Bob never does anything normal. It’s all about mixing it up and adding our own little twist on it. So taking some of the best parts of St. Pat’s Day menu, he created his own Irish Bruschetta for easy making and eating. He served it up for all the folks at his demo at the North Texas Irish Festival 2015. But if you missed his demo, you can still get your one-on-one with this video from Fox Good Day.
