Remarks

For a crustier topping, you can add a little home-made breadcrumb coating and mix this with the grated cheese in stage 6.

For something closer to a real cassoulet, use chunks or slices of sausage instead of the meat.

Keeping:

1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film. Freezes very well.
