Reviews for Skillet Cassoulet
"So good and very easy. The only thing I added was some Cajun seasoning to the meat/veggie mixture in the beginning."
"This turned out pretty good. A lot of flavor that got even better the next day. I doubled the recipe so we would have left-overs for lunch the next day. Easy to make and I will fix this again."
"Husband thought this was tasty. Frankly, a lot of men would go for a dish like this. I left out the ham and doubled the turkey kielbasa. Next time I might add the ham in, though. I used "Butterball" brand turkey kielbasa and we both thought this brand had a ton of decent flavor--a wee bit better turkey flavor than "Hillshire". I do all the kitchen cooking in my house and having hit the age of 60 and still working full-time, I have been hunting for less prep-intensive recipes. This was so easy to prepare! Be sure to cut the carrots into a small dice so they are done when the rest of the veggies are cooked. I did add a bit of Cajun seasoning since hubby likes that kind of flavor. I did not use no-sodium products--never do."
"I made this with Hebrew National Beef frankfurters and canned tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, omitting spices. It would have been better had I followed the recipe more closely, but it was still good. It was too salty for me. It is good for a quick weeknight meal, and hubby thought it was great. Worth making again."
"This recipe is so quick and easy and tasty. It has become a keeper in our house. I often fix it on Saturdays when I am not in a "cooking" mood."
"We loved this dish--I doubled the recipe and everything came out beautifully. Would definitely make it again."
"We make our sausage so this is a great recipe. I also added more meat, and any kind of canned bean works great in this recipe. I'd make it again."
"Well now I know why the "bring to a boil" direction was so confusing: in the magazine it said to drain the tomatoes, here it says not to. Anyway, it came out tasty. I added more meat (had about half a pound of ham, almost a pound of sausage) and I think there were so many beans that it would've been overly-bean-dominated otherwise. I also added probably half a can of black beans I had lying around. Tasty, filling, and easy to make."
"I really like this. Very flavorful."
"Delicious! Easy to prepare; prep took a few minutes. Doubled the ingredients so there would be leftovers!!! We used spicy kielbasa. Thank you, Barbara for submitting this recipe."
