The idea: Make an enormous batch of Lamb Merguez (and we mean it -- feel free to really go big, since you can freeze any leftovers!). Then, take a break -- you've knocked out breakfast, brunch, and dinner to come.

Better have friends over for this one -- tell us those eggs don't look killer!

Merguez and Sweet Potato Hash

A hash is the perfect way to put whatever's left to use (classically for breakfast, but hey, who's checking?). This version with sweet potato is Merrill's new favorite.

Wonderful inspiration to finally get the meat grinder for my Kitchen Aid. I love the merguez recipe though after making it (and tasting for seasoning, and tasting again of course) one addition worth considering is Sumac. This traditional Moroccan ingredient adds a bit of tartness or citrus-like tang to the sausage. It's an element I've enjoyed in true Moroccan merguez and it checks the sweetness of the cinnamon a bit. Moorish paella tonight - can't wait!

Friends recently returned from North Africa with many spices for me including sumac. Adding to the sausage is a brilliant idea!! Thank you

Wonderful merguez round up. Having tried disappointing store-bought merguez on the back of Mrs W's initial win, I set about yesterday getting ready to make this.

One day later, my merguez mix is resting in the fridge, flavours developing. Thank you!

I just checked the freezer. Yes, I do have another pound of merguez. Thank you for these great ways to use it!
