Irish Food Ideas - Soups

Home > Holidays > St. Patrick's Day > Irish Recipes > Soups > Easy Irish Coddle

Coddle is a traditional Irish dish. It is considered a comfort food in Ireland and is typically eaten during the winter months. Coddle is steamed not boiled so a tight fitting lid on the soup pot is essential.
