  heat and simmer 15 minutes.
  Blanch fatback cubes in boiling water for 2 minutes. Place in 2
  gallon soup pot with duck fat and place over medium heat. Add onion,
  carrots, garlic and Jambon and cook until light golden brown, about 7
  to 9 minutes. Add pork butt and ham hock and cook until lightly

  roughly cut meat into 1/2 inch cubes.
  Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  In a 6 quart crockery casserole, lay 1/3 of the bean pork mixture.
  Sprinkle with ham hock pieces and cover with 1/3 of bean pork
  mixture. Lay duck pieces over beans. Saute Toulouse sausages in a
  nonstick pan until golden brown and lay, still hot, over duck and
  beans. Place remaining beans over everything and add remaining cup of
  stock. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake 1 to 11/2 hours until
  crispy golden brown on top and serve.
