    Olha's Note:

    Saturday night supper for the Dublin working man was a traditional dish in his family. The amount of bacon and sausage would depend on the financial circumstances at the moment. Original Dublin versions didn’t call for browning the meat, but most American versions do.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut 1/2 pound or 1 pound bacon slices into 2 inch lengths, or cut piece of bacon into thick slices and into 2 inch lengths. Brown bacon in a heavy frying pan. Drain on paper towels. Prick 1/2 to 1 pound sausages and brown in frying pan. Drain along with bacon.
    2. 2
      Arrange bacon and sausages in a casserole or heavy kettle.
    3. 3
      Slice onions and arrange on bacon and sausages. Pare and slice potatoes and place on top of onions. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Sprinkle layers of onions and potatoes with salt and pepper to taste. The amount will depend on saltiness of bacon and sausage.
    4. 4
      Pour off all but a tablespoon or two of the drippings in the frying pan. Add 1 cup of water to drippings and bring to a boil. Pour over Coddle. If needed, add additional water until almost to the top of the potatoes. Cover and bake in a moderate oven 350 F., until potatoes and onions are very tender, about 1 hour. Uncover for last 10 to 15 minutes of cooking and brown slightly, if desired.
    5. 5
      Traditionally, Coddle is simmered on top of the stove instead of in the oven. Serve with Irish Soda Bread or homemade whole wheat bread. Makes 6 servings.

      Comfort food it is. I added some chicken broth for part of the water since I had some in the frig that I wanted to use up. Used 1/2 lb. of bacon and sausages, each, two potatoes, two onions and lots of parsley. I was disappointed that the top didn't brown, even with an extra 15 minutes in the oven...I might try turning up the temperature to 375 for the last 15 minutes the next time. I do recommend this highly! It is sooooo rich and, I am sure, quite variable in flavor depending on choice of bacon and of sausages. Thanks for posting this!
