Spray a large frying pan with olive oil spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add the sausages and cook, turning, for 5 mins or until lightly browned. Add bacon and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until golden. Add beans, stir-through sauce and 1/2 cup (125ml) water. Season and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 10 mins or until sauce thickens and sausages are cooked.


Meanwhile, place the bread in a food processor. Process until coarse crumbs form. Spray a medium frying pan with olive oil spray and heat over high heat. Add the breadcrumbs and cook, tossing, for 3-4 mins or until golden. 


Sprinkle the cassoulet with the breadcrumbs to serve.
