I absolutely love making delicious meals for my family. Using my slow cooker is a convenient way of having a delicious dinner ready on time every day without slaving over a hot oven all day. Also, I can find 10 minutes in the morning and have a wonderful meal by the end of the day. This lovely sausage cassoulet was prepared in my slow cooker, was tasty and super simple too!

sausage cassoulet

Course Main Course
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 6 hours
Total Time 6 hours 5 minutes
Servings 3 people


  • Large onion
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tin chickpeas
  • 6 sausages
  • 30 g tomato puree
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp mild chilli powder
  • 1 tsp medium curry powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp basil
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika


  1. Brown the sausages in a pan. Fry them lightly for a couple of minutes until each side is brown.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker. 

  3. Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 6 hours. 

Once I had put this sausage cassoulet together then I turned it on low for around 8 hours. The first 30 minutes I cooked it on high (as per the instructions on my particular slow cooker). In the end, I had a look and I didn’t need to add any cornflour to thicken it up – it was already perfect!

Sausage Cassoulet - A look at the finished dish

We thoroughly enjoyed this dinner. We’ve had it quite a few times now. I typically serve it either with mashed potato or on its own. It is a really filling dinner and if you get super high-quality sausages it needn’t be too unhealthy either.

I love the flavours of this sausage cassoulet because they really compliment each other. The slow cooking really helps the flavours to meld together and as a result, it has a smoky flavour to it. I’m a real fan of slow cooker dinners. They are convenient, often cheap and you can use all sorts of cuts of meat to save money too if you choose.
