DUBLIN CODDLE (IRISH BACON, SAUSAGE, POTATO, AND ONION STEW)

Dublin Coddle is a comfort food associated with the Irish capital. It is a hearty stew of bacon, sausage, potatoes, and onions, popular ingredients in Irish cooking.

The days just seem to fly by and the holidays come and go so quickly, it takes my breath away. Maybe it is because I write a food blog and I keep track of the holidays so that you, my dear readers from all over the globe will have recipes that you may want to try. In a way, it is fun and interesting as I get to experiment with all kinds of dishes that I would not otherwise cook. It broadens my horizon and palate and I learn new things each and every day. Of course the family gets to enjoy the food too as what you see on the blog is what we eat. If it does not pass the taste test, it will not appear here.
