This healthy Irish slow cooker meal uses only a few simple ingredients. You can serve this unique St. Patrick’s Day recipe for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
All this week I’m cooking my favorite St. Patrick’s Day recipes. When you think of a St. Patrick’s Day recipe, what do you think of? Corned beef & cabbage, right? I’ll be sharing with you different Irish recipes. Don’t get me wrong, you are going to see some sort of corned beef recipe out of me as well. And yes, St. Patrick’s Day is still a couple of weeks away I know. I want you to have these recipes on-hand prior to the holiday so you can properly plan. First up is Dublin Coddle. This is SSSSOOOO easy to make. You can eat this for breakfast (see bottom of this post), lunch or dinner.
I bet you already have all the ingredients. If you don’t have a slow cooker, email me and I will convert this to a dutch oven for you. The main ingredients are meat & potatoes. Seriously, who doesn’t love a recipe that uses this much bacon & sausage?!? I used my beloved white sweet potatoes for the starch and pork for the meat. This recipe is so versatile. If you don’t eat pork, use turkey bacon and sausage. If you can’t find white sweet potatoes, use yams or regular potatoes.
In the past I have added 1 lb carrots to this recipe as well. Since the bacon and sausage are both partially cooked before you add them to the slow cooker, this meal cooks fast. You just need a couple of hours on HIGH.
- 1 lb sausage
- 1 lb bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 cup low-sodium beef broth
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 onions, cut into large chunks
- 1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
- ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
- salt and pepper
- Brown bacon and sausage over medium heat.
- In the slow cooker, add ¼ of the potatoes, onions, bacon and sausage. Repeat layers until all of the ingredients are used.
- Sprinkle garlic, salt and pepper on top.
- Pour broth over all ingredients.
- Cook HIGH 2-3 hours or LOW 4-6 hours.
How about some leftovers for breakfast? Perfect with some hot sauce and eggs in a tortilla.
