A hearty Irish dish with sausage, bacon or ham, potato and onion. Serve with a bottle of Guinness, and Irish soda bread, for sopping up the gravy!
Servings: 8 -10
- 1 lb. thick-sliced bacon cut in 2-inch pieces
- 1 1/2 lbs. pork sausage links
- 4 lg. (about 2 lbs.) potatoes peeled and sliced
- 2 lg. onions quartered and sliced
- 1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley divided
- Salt and pepper to taste to taste
- 2 c. chicken stock
- In large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat, then drain on paper towels. Brown sausages in the remaining bacon fat; drain on paper towels and slice into 1-inch pieces.
- Peel and slice potatoes about 1/4-inch thick. Peel, quarter, and slice onions. Chop parsley.
- In a 5-quart Dutch oven OR casserole dish with lid, layer 1/3 of the potatoes, 1/3 of the onions. Season with a little salt and pepper, then layer 1/3 of the sausage and bacon over the onions. Sprinkle with a little fresh chopped parsley. Repeat layers two more times.
- In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil. Pour over the potato casserole. Sprinkle with more chopped parsley if desired.
- Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes, until potatoes are just tender. Remove the cover and cook an additional 20 to 30 minutes, until the top is browned and potatoes are tender.
- Cook's Note: If you prefer a creamier sauce, just add a little cream to the broth. Sliced carrots also make a nice addition to this dish. Chopped ham can be substituted for the bacon, if you wish.
