Directions

Simmer sausages in shallow boiling water to heat through, drain and wipe out, return to stove.
While the sausages simmer, slice the bacon into 1/2-inch wide batons. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan and heat over medium-high heat. Thick cut the knocks on an angle and add them to the skillet and sear at the edges, remove the sausages and add the bacon and render until almost crisp but not-quite. Remove the bacon from the skillet to paper towel to cool but reserve the drippings.

In a casserole dish, stir together the beans, garlic, and shallots and season with lots of coarse black pepper. Smooth out in the dish and wipe down the sides of the dish. Nestle the chunks of knocks into the beans, arranging them all around the casserole and allowing them to peek up and out a bit. Dot the beans with thick Worcestershire sauce. Scatter the chiles and scallions and herbs over top of the casserole. Scatter the bacon over top and using a pastry brush, dot with some of the drippings. Cover and store for a make-ahead meal.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Bake the casserole in a hot oven on a baking sheet liner until the top surface is crispy in spots and bubbly all over.

Slice the brown bread into 1-inch thick slices. On a heated griddle, melt 2 tablespoons butter and toast brown bread until slightly browned and crispy, flip the bread , and repeat.

    This was easy & cheap. I used Bushs smokehouse grillin beans and the extra worcestershire was a bit too much smoke flavor. I would make this again though it wasn't spectacular. I left off the chilies since I couldn't find them, and I have 2 small kids. We tone the spice down a bit on a lot of recipes (though we would prefer not to! because I refuse to cook a separate chicken nugget/mac & cheeese meal for my kids. They eat what we eat now that they are eating table food!

    This is an excellent dish that is easy and inexpensive. The red chilies just MAKE the dish. Everything is better with chilies in it! All of the spices combine to compliment each other, the beans, and the sausages quite well. My husband and teenage daughter both loved it. Thanks, Rachael!

    Since when does knockwurst come with chilies. Chilies are ridiculous and inappropriate in almost every dish on fn.
