  1. The name comes from the long, slow simmering or coddling of the dish. It has been suggested the popularity of Coddle arose because if you add a bit of beef stock it can be left simmering on the stove till the man comes in from the pub long after the wife had gone to bed. Sherri, Mad Mike's Wife, does not recommend that... Besides not tasting as good, she thinks if the man is not home for dinner then the Coddle should go in the refrigerator and he can heat his own darn dinner!
