Cumberland sausage cassoulet

This Cumberland sausage cassoulet dish is comforting, so simple to make and best of all…a one pan wonder! I love to serve it with chunks of crusty bread but it would also be great with creamy mash and a side of greens. Don’t forget the balsamic at the end, it makes the whole dish sing.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium/high heat and brown the sausage in the pan on both sides. Once nicely coloured, remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add celery and onion to the pan with the knob of butter.
  4. Fry the vegetables for a few minutes until softened.
  5. Add garlic to the pan with a good pinch of salt and pepper.
  6. Add the sage and rosemary and stir into the veggies.
  7. Add the tomato purée and cook for 1 minute.
  8. Now crumble in the stock cube and pour in the white wine.
  9. Cook until you can no longer smell the alcohol.
  10. Add the drained beans and pour in just enough water to cover the beans.
  11. Return the sausage to the pan along with the bay leaves.
  12. Cook in the oven for 45 minutes.
  13. Once out of the oven, drizzle over a few swigs of balsamic.
  14. I like to slice the sausage up whilst in the pan and then stir it all together.
  15. Serve with big chunks of crusty bread.
