Will definitely make this again. Didn't use smoked turkey sausage as I couldn't find it over here. Used a cured sausage called cabana, which worked great. The dish turned out with a lot of liquid so we served it over rice sort of jumbalaya style - Fabulous.
This is a very good cassoulet recipe - a cut above others I have made. I followed others suggestions and cut the broth to 1 cup and I added 1/2 cup white wine. I upped the bay leaves to two and kept the other spices as called for. This is great in the flavor department and I used cooked chicken which made it even easier. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
This was wonderful. I will admit to browing and adding a couple of lamb lollypops an hour or two before serving. I also threw in the entire sausage. I did go 1/2 a cup less on the liquid and it was still very soupy. Maybe this recipe is better on the stove that way, but a little corn starch boiled down on the stove made it divine. Thank you for such a great tasting recipe!
