Cassoulet au Canard

This duck-lover's version of the classic southern French casserole includes the bird in the form of rich sausages, bone-in legs and thighs, breast meat, and the traditional confit.Penny De Los Santos

The hearty, meat-studded dish from southwestern France known as cassoulet may be the ultimate one-pot meal. A slow-simmered mix of beans, pork sausages, pork shoulder, pancetta, and duck, the cassoulet takes its name from the earthenware cassole in which it was traditionally made. The crisped bread crumb crust atop this version contrasts appealingly with the hearty stew beneath.
