A slaves Weekday Cassoulet
A cassoulet is a classic of French country cooking. It usually takes at least two days to cook properly. There is a reason for this. I know some purest will scream at slave for even calling this a cassoulet. However most today just do not have the time and need something they can cook after they get home from work. So here is all of the traditional elements, put together in a slightly different way. Yes it still will take close to an hour, but you will be serving a unique dish that few would even attempt!
Poultry, beef, and pork cooked in a big bed of beans with plenty of flavor! Just the right size and a good way to use up any thighs, bratwurst and a can of beans!
3 slices bacon
2 bratwurst (each cut into thirds)
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans Northern white beans
1 can baked beans (well drained)
1 can diced tomatoes
½ cup chopped onion
1 Tbs mustard
¼ cup light brown sugar
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce (low sodium)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. spray a
9 x 9 baking dish.
Do your cutting: chop the onion and garlic.
Cut the bacon in half, the chicken thighs &
bratwurst in thirds. Always do this step first,
with each in containers ready to add when a
recipe calls for it.
In a skillet, cook the bacon over medium
heat until done and has released bacon
Remove the bacon to a paper towel, leaving
the bacon drippings in the pan.
Add the chicken and bratwursts. Brown on
both sides (about 4 minutes each) and then
remove to another paper towel lined plate.
While that is cooking: drain the cans of
tomatoes and baked bean well.
Place in large bowl with brown sugar, onion,
mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix this
together well and pour into the baking dish.
Nestle the chicken pieces and bratwurst
into the beans. Spread the broken pieces of
cooked bacon over the top. Bake for about
Now if you wish for a more traditional touch
sprinkle the top of the casserole with a few
Serve the cassoulet with a side of a salad
and maybe your Master's favorite wine.
