Dublin Coddle for St. Patrick’s Day

IrelandSt. Patrick’s Day is here, and while that means that all your favorite foods will be colored green in America. However, a less verdant but perhaps more authentic way to celebrate is with the versatile Dublin dish, coddle. One of the most emblematic dishes from Dublin, Dublin coddle (aka Irish coddle or just “coddle”) is a homestyle (some may say old fashioned) stewed dish made with pork sausage, bacon and potatoes, and everyone has their own version. The name comes from the cooking technique of “coddling,” cooking in below-boiling water. Edible Ireland has a great recipe, along with recipes for boxty and colcannon.
