Instant Pot Dublin Coddle (adapted for #FMD) #FoodieExtravaganza

I cooked up this traditional Irish dish in the Instant Pot.  Not only that but I also adapted the recipe to make it fit into my eating plan for this month.

Bacon and Sausage combine with vegetables to make this traditional dish that the Irish call Dublin Coddle.

My friend Karen of Karen's Kitchen Stories is hosting this month's Foodie Extravaganza.  Where we celebrate National Food Holidays each month.

In honor of St. Pat's Day, Karen asked us to share an Irish recipe for this month's event.  Perfect!!

I have shared a lot of St. Pat's recipes.  I normally have a dinner party and invite my brother whose birthday is the day after St. Patrick's Day.  Usually I make Corned Beef and Cabbage for a crowd.  I always start the meal with soup, like this Irish Root Soup followed by a salad.  This Shades of Green salad was delicious.

I began the Fast Metabolism Diet again as part of my Lenten journey.  I started before Lent as I needed to start taking better care of myself again.  So I needed to adapt the recipe I'm sharing with you today to be FMD friendly.  

I did this by using nitrate free, turkey bacon and smoked sausage.  I also omitted the potato for my serving.  I am allowed sweet potatoes but I was out of them.  But before I share this quick and easy Instant Pot recipe let's take a look at what the others are sharing.

March 17 is National Irish Food Day, or National "Eat Like an Irishman" Day. My #FoodieExtravaganza friends and I are all sharing Irish themed recipes to celebrate! Karen of Karen's Kitchen Stories, is our host. Check out this collection of recipes celebrating Irish food:

This recipe can be made using the same technique with thick cut bacon, or better yet Irish bacon, and Smoked Sausage of choice.
