- Yield: 4-6 servings
- 1 lb Pork sausages
- 1/2 lb Bacon, preferably thick-sliced or diced, not thin strips
- 2 cups Stock or water
- 2 lbs Russet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
- 2 Large yellow onions, thinly sliced
- Salt, to taste
- Pepper, to taste
- 2 tbsp Fresh parsley, chopped
- Combine sausages, bacon and stock or water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Transfer meats to a bowl, reserving the broth.
- In a large lidded casserole dish, place 1/3 of the potatoes in a single layer. Top with half of the onions and season with salt and pepper and a sprinkling of parsley.
- Cut the sausages into 3 or 4 pieces and add a layer of half the sausage and bacon to the pot. Repeat the process, ending with a top layer of potatoes.
- Season with salt, pepper and parsley and pour reserved broth over all.
- Simmer, covered, over low heat for at least an hour, until liquid is reduced by about half and ingredients are cooked but not mushy. Check about halfway through.
- Serve hot with a sprinkling of parsley and Irish soda bread to sop up the broth. A pint of stout is the perfect accompaniment.
