Fall shouts out for slow cooked (or coddled) dishes. The kind that warm the heart on a long, rainy day or a chill evening. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that if you love stews, this dish will not only warm your heart, but it will warm your soul as well. Don’t let the simple looks fool you, what this stew lacks in looks it more than makes up for in deep and complex flavors, all while retaining a lovely rustic, homey charm.
The coddle is a traditional Irish recipe that has been a favorite in Dublin since the 17th century. It’s traditionally served with soda bread to mop up the juices, and trust me, you’re going to want to mop them up, they’re succulent.
Whether you make this dish on a chill fall evening, for a satisfying winter dinner or for an authentic Irish meal for St. Patrick’s day, just make it. We can’t recommend it enough.
*For my friends who prefer to cook in a slow cooker, just follow the recipe up until it’s time to layer the casserole and plunk the ingredients in your crock pot on low for 4 to 6 hours.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
To be honest, we just wished that we had doubled the recipe! This is killer, crazy good stuff.

Wow, this looks wonderful! I think I’ll add it as a surprise dish for my Thanksgiving table. :)
Well, that sounds like a great warming dish. I guess instead of my favourite beer it’s supposed to contain some kind of Irish beer, like the dark one, everyone knows.
Actually, I’d skip the Guinness on this one and use a lighter beer. I actually used a light porter and it was fabulous.

wow this looks incredibly comforting. I just wish I had genuine Irish sausage to use here. None of the stuff in my local stores compare!
I know this is an old post but; just in case. What sausage could be substituted for the Irish Sausages? Don’t think I’m gonna find in So. cali
Any good sausage will do here. I used a mild German sausage in this recipe. So a decent Brat will work for sure.
