This Dublin coddle is a combination of potatoes, bacon, and sausage. Parsley and onions are added to the dish for color and flavor. It's an excellent dish for a St. Patrick's Day event, but you don't have to wait for a special occasion to enjoy the dish. Add it to a big breakfast or brunch, or serve it for dinner, and don't forget the Irish soda bread.
