Sausages with baked beans, French style


Sausages with baked beans, French style
What could be more basic than sausages and beans? This is a rustic French version using dried white haricot beans (or "mogettes") that are first boiled fast, then left to cook slowly with tomatoes and smoked sausages.

The long cooking allows the smoky flavour of the sausages to gradually spread down into the beans - simply delicious!

Stage 6 - 2 min.
Sausages with baked beans, French style
Lay 800 g sausages on top and prick these with the point of a knife to allow the flavour to seep into the beans.

Stage 7 - 45 min.
Sausages with baked beans, French style

Remarks
"Mogettes" are dried white beans from France's Vendée region. If you can't get these, you can use any other type of beans you like. It's not absolutely essential to use smoked sausages, but it's certainly better.

If you don't have vegetable stock, use chicken stock instead or even just water with a stock cube.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Tiramisu
Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.

Rolls of fish in smoked ham
Rolls of fish in smoked ham
Pieces of white fish rolled in thinly sliced smoked ham. These rolls are cooked in a little olive oil and served with French beans. The pairing of smoked ham with fish might seem a little strange, but in fact these flavours marry well.
