White Bean Cassoulet for the Slow Cooker

READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
Recipe by Debi9400

This dish has a lovely scent of thyme and a robust stew like consistency. Uses a 5 qt slower cooker. It comes from an old issue of Cooking Light Magazine

This is a great healthy and inexpensive filling meal. I add extra white beans because I love them so much. The breadcrumbs at the end really make it a special dish. Thanks!
