Cooktop Cove
Dublin coddle
10 minutes
3 hours
3 hours 10 minutes
1 pound thick-cut bacon
1 pound pork sausage
2 onions, thinly sliced
4 pounds new potatoes, halved
2 cups chicken broth (plus more as needed)
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 300 F. Heat a pan over medium-high heat and cook the bacon and sausage just to brown. Cut the bacon into 1-inch pieces and the sausage into bite-sized lengths.
In a large ovenproof Dutch oven with a tight lid, arrange the ingredients in layers, seasoning each layer. Top with the chicken broth. Heat on the stovetop until the liquid comes to a boil, then cover the pot and bake for 3 to 4 hours, checking after two hours to add more chicken broth if needed.
