Two nights ago, in honour of my Irish forebears, I made Dublin Coddle for supper. When I mentioned this culinary achievement in an e-mail to a friend in Lincolnshire, he wrote back asking what such a thing could be. I was shocked, thinking that everyone in the British Isles knew of this classic Irish dish of potatoes, bacon, sausage, and onions simmered in broth. How wrong am I?

Father Steve - is this dish also called colcannon, or is that something different?

Father Steve,
I know Dublin Coddle from St Patrick's Day celebrations in the U.S. South. Maybe Helen will weigh in on its popularity in NYC. As for your friend, quite possibly Lincolnshire is farther from Dublin than is Atlanta.

Angel,
google dublin-coddle and you will find many recipes.

Colcannon is not the same as Dublin Coddle, in that it is a dish of potatoes and cabbage (or kale) without meat.

I thought bubble and squeak was potatoes and cabbage, but maybe bubble and squeak has more of a soup-like consistency.

Colcannon is new to me, but what a cool word! Wonder why "cannon"?

I found over a dozen recipes, just by searching for "Dublin coddle recipe".

This thread sent me searching in a recipe book called Potluck: Potato Recipes from Ireland, by Nell Donnelly (Wolfhound Press). Dublin coddle isn't listed there, but it does have some good recipes as well as some interesting Irish history and folklore, and a sprinkling of poems and songs, including this one:

Over Here

Oh, the praties they are small,
Over here, over here!
Oh, the praties they are small,
Over here!
Oh, the praties they are small
And we dig them in the fall,
And we ate them coats and all,
Full of fear, full of fear.

Oh, I wish we all were geese,
Night and morn, night and morn!
Oh, I wish we all were geese,
Night and morn!
Oh, I wish we all were geese,
For they live and die at peace,
Till the hour of their decease,
'Atin' corn, 'atin' corn.

Oh, we're down into the dust,
Over here, over here!
Oh, we're down into the dust,
Over here!
Oh, we're down into the dust,
But the God in whom we trust,
Will yet give us crumb for crust,
Over here, over here!

I wonder if praties is Gaelic for potatoes. It's used here and there in this little recipe book.

Duh! Dublin Coddle is something to eat; St. Patrick's Day celebrations are something to drink.

Do you know a ham from a hacksaw?
