Serves 4 

olive oil
3 tins white beans
100 g bacon
2 leeks
1 carrot
2 onions
2 cloves garlic
2 sticks celery
2 sprigs rosemary
2 bay leaves
8 good quality French style sausages (we recommend from Brandt & Levie)
50 g panko breadcrumbs
1 small bunch flat leaf parsley
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 220 °C. Roughly chop the bacon. Finely chop the leeks, carrot, onions, garlic and celery.

Heat a pan with 4 tablespoons olive oil and sweat the chopped ingredients, about 7 minutes. Add the beans, along with some of their liquid (± 5 tablespoons), the rosemary, bay leaves, salt and a generous grind of pepper. Cook for 10 minutes.

Fry the sausages in a frying pan for 10 minutes until golden brown.

Slice each of the sausages into 3 pieces and add to the bean mixture. Check the seasoning.

Finely chop the parsley and mix with the breadcrumbs.

Spoon the bean mixture into a roasting dish. Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and drizzle with  olive oil. Place the tray in the preheated oven or under a hot grill until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve with good bread and a full-bodied (Southern French) red wine.
