  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Place the sausages and bacon into a large skillet over medium heat, and cook until the sausages are browned on both sides, about 10 minutes. Slice the sausages into large chunks, and set the sausage and bacon aside.
  3. Place a layer of 1/3 of the onions in a 9x13-inch baking dish, followed by a layer of 1/3 of the carrots and sliced potatoes. Arrange 1/3 of sausage and bacon in a layer over the potatoes; sprinkle with salt, pepper, and parsley. Repeat layers twice more. Warm the beef stock in a saucepan over medium heat, and pour in the stout beer and cream. Pour the sauce over the casserole, and let the sauce fill in the spaces in the layers.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the potatoes and vegetables are tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

I love Coddle. We layer it in a slow cooker. We layer Potatoes then onions, salt and Pepper, Sausages and then Bacon on top. Then we pour Chicken Broth on top around 2 cups. Let it cook all day. My children and husband think this is the best cold day meal.


This wasn't that labor intensive at all. But 3 layers of layers, didn't do it in my 9x13 when I doubled the recipe for my family. I used a larger pan and divided the layers in to 2 layers of layers. I hope you got that ;-) I thought the dish was okay, not totally my cup of tea but it was okay. The stout was something that was a bit put off-ish in my book as well as my son's....but my husband and my 3 girls really liked it. I'll make again for them, but not for myself. However, if your a true guinness lover, then the recipe is totally for you. If you're not into guinness or don't have a liking for beer...then it's not. What I did like about the recipe, was the carrots and onions.


We found this recipe to be a HUGE disappointment and a waste of Guiness. I couldn't even tweak it into tasting good. The broth must be thickened or it's just soup, and the flavor left a lot to be desired. Maybe it's because I love the Coddle at Gogarty's in Dublin, nothing else will ever be good to me?
