Merguez Sausage
You may well find the Mediterranean spicy sausage dish addictive. It is important to set aside the browned vegetables separately, as they are cooked in layers later. Try to turn them over in step 3 in one piece; if this seems unlikely, leave them alone. They will still taste fantastic.

Merguez, Kale, and Sweet Potato Frittata
Whether you're entertaining two or 10 around the holidays, it's hard to beat a frittata when it comes to serving up a hearty and healthy breakfast.  Akin to a large, flat (i.e. unrolled) omelette, frittatas are the perfect brunch item, in my book. It's a vehicle for all sorts of toppings, here salty and spicy merguez sausage, rich green winter kale, chunks of roasted sweet potato, and delicate caramelized onions. All of the ingredients can be prepped in advance, so all you need to do is mix the eggs and add the ingredients about 20 minutes before you want to eat.  This recipe serves two, but it can be easily doubled or tripled to feed your group. Just use a larger sauté pan and be sure to cook the frittata until the center is just set — it will certainly take longer in the oven. Serve with toasted slices of hearty farm bread, fresh butter, and jam. Click here to see Lazy Sunday Brunch Recipes.

Fresh and spicy sausages made of lamb and delicately spiced with cumin and hot pepper. I can never seem to find them so usually use the suggested substitute - hot chorizo. Ideal accompaniment to savory tomato jam and sweet mint zuchinni. From Lukin's Celebrate Morocco.

Hank Shaw likens sausage-making to jazz: "You have all these standards, but there's room for improvisation." With this spicy merguez from North Africa, adjust the seasonings to vary the flavor intensity and heat.

Algerians like their sausage spicy and with an exceptional array of seasonings. The version that follows can be considered medium hot, with pepper and chili providing the heat, while the garlic adds the aromatic richness.

Delicious beef sausages cooked in a tomato sauce. Adapted from "Tunisia: Mediterranean Cuisine" published by Konemann. This recipe has five separate parts. Please read all the directions before you start cooking. Try to time everything so that they're done at the same time. We got pretty close. Also, traditional cuisine would use preserved lemons, but we tried to make our own preserved lemons and they fermented on us. So fresh works too.

A North-African lamb sausage flavored with the spicy pepper spread harissa, merguez is delicious in sandwiches like these (fresh Mexican chorizo or another spicy sausage will also work well in this recipe).

Merguez, the spicy lamb sausages of North Africa, are popular throughout France. These nearly labor-free patties are a quick way to re-create them in your kitchen. The sweetness of the raisin couscous contrasts nicely with the meat's deep spice.

"David Kinch once said that my meals aren't complete without rice. He's probably right," says Pim Techamuanvivit, who cooks her rice in a clay pot from her native Thailand. Her earthy baked rice, with mushrooms and chunks of the spicy lamb sausage merguez, is a terrific side dish for the lamb chops, but it's also hearty enough to eat on its own.

Butcher-shop owner Tanya Cauthen likes flavoring supremely tender braised lamb with a North African spice blend that includes cumin and fennel seeds. Lamb shanks are great for serving at dinner parties, since they look so dramatic, but lamb stew meat—cut from the shoulder or the leg—is equally delicious. Or, for a less gamey flavor, substitute beef short ribs.
