Fabrique Delices, California
Merguez is spicy lamb sausage that originated in the North African countries of Morocco, Algeria, Libya , and Tunisia and became popular throughout the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and Western Europe. Because the originating countries are predominantly Muslim, thus prohibited from eating pork, merguez are traditionally stuffed into lamb casings, which are smaller than the pork casings used in most sausages. While our large merguez sausages use pork casings, these smaller 2oz. sausages are completely pork free, made from lamb raised on natural feed with no animal by-products.
Fabrique Delices, a company that has been carefully crafting artisanal charcuterie in California since 1985, makes these merguez sausages following traditional recipes to ensure authentic texture and flavor.
Ingredients: Lamb, Water, Paprika, Salt, Olive Oil, Spices (coriander, marjoram, allspice, nutmeg, caraway), Cayenne Pepper, Granulated Garlic, Pepper, Natural Lamb Casing.
* No Artificial Ingredients
Store these sausages in your freezer until you're ready to use them, then thaw only as many as you need. Thawed sausages should be stored in the refrigerator.

RECIPES & TIPS
This lamb sausage can be grilled or fried whole or sliced, or the casing can be cut, and the sausage removed for crumbling into a wide assortment of dishes. Merguez sausage is particularly suited to pairing with northern African flavors, but also makes a great sausage bolognese (Merguez Bolognese Recipe).
