Sausage recipe for a cassoulet?

  • e

Does anyone have a recipe for a sausage typically used in a traditional cassoulet?

  1. I know it is called Toulouse Sausage (or Saucisse de Toulouse), though I have not made it on my own. It is a French sausage usually made with pork, smoked bacon, wine, spices (and maybe garlic).

    and click on the name of the sausage (Saucisse de Toulouse). There is a recipe available there.

    Maybe these guys can help you. See,

    1. If I remember correctly, there is a recipe for Toulouse Sausage in Julia Child's first book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. 1. I would look it up but I don't have my cookbooks here at work.


      1. TA-DA! If one reads the VARIATIONS section at the end of the recipe in good ol' Julia's opus, it is stated that Polish sausage is a good substitute for that French thing. Which Polish sausage is not specified. The Polish word for sausage is 'Kielbasa.'

        I use kielbasa as a substitute for andouille when I make jambalaya. Maybe if you can find andouille, you can use it.
