Ingredients

  • 3 slices of bread (or 1 cup premade bread crumbs)
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ lb. turkey kielbasa sausage, thinly sliced
  • 1½ cups diced cooked white turkey
  • 1 can (16 oz.) Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (28 oz.) whole tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup dry white wine or dry red wine
  • 1½ tsp. chopped fresh thyme

  • Sprinkle the cassoulet with the bread crumbs and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until browned and bubbling.
