Happy St. Paddy's Day! Irish Coddle from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Marya found this great recipe on the blog Fat Free Vegan, and I just had to try it for St. Patrick's Day.

You'll find the recipes here for both the coddle and the sausages.

First I made the sausages.
I didn't realize until I was wrapping up the sausage mixture in the aluminum foil that the recipe didn't call for any oil. I will confess to panicking a bit because I was concerned that the the sausage would stick to the foil. Then I remembered the source of the recipe - Fat Free Vegan. So I took what felt like a leap of faith and continued to wrap the sausages, then steamed them. They came out better than most sausages I've made, so I was both relieved and impressed.

Next, I stacked in a Dutch oven: a layer of potatoes, then onions, then the sausage, then more potatoes, topping off with more onions. The stack ends up being high, and only a cup and a half of liquid goes in. The result is, as this Wikipedia entry mentions, it is semi-boiled and semi-steamed.

It was delicious!

    Kіtсhen" is kinda plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news headlines to get viewers to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about everything've written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
