Irish/Spanish American and love my dad's cheap and yummy coddle recipe. Any ideas on how to make this in a healthy way?
baileydog1980 saidUse smoked bacon with the rind trimmed off, choose sweet potatoes over white ones and pick low fat high meat percent sausages.
Finely chop an onion and a carrot or two, add them to a pan with some thyme, a couple of teaspoons of a healthy oil and fry it at a high temperature for about one minute. Chop the bacon and add it to the pan, reduce the heat to a very low setting and let it sweat for about fifteen to twenty minutes.
I'd cook the sausages in another pan then add the whole lot to an over proof pot pot layering the sausages, bacon, finely sliced sweet potatoes and onions as you go add reduced salt chicken stock and parsley and season with pepper.
Cover with a lid and bake in the oven for about an hour at 350°F/175°C/gas 4, remove the lid and brown for another twenty minutes.
It won't be the same as the traditional version but should still be a tasty and relatively healthy meal.
