A Sandwich a Day: Merguez Aiolissa at Harissa Cafe in Astoria

New York Max Falkowitz 1 comment

There's nothing casual about the Merguez Aiolissa ($7.95), a foot-long lamb sausage with spicy mayo on a lean baguette from Balthazar Bakery. The tender merguez comes in a snappy casing that gives way to a well-spiced interior, with strong notes of cumin, coriander, and wily harissa. More

Moroccan Merguez Ragout with Poached Eggs

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 9 comments

For those with a passion for runny yolks, it doesn't get much better than Shakshuka, that Middle Eastern dish of eggs poached in a spiced tomato sauce. Of course, there is one way to improve on the dish and that would be by adding chunks of Moroccan merguez à la this: Moroccan Merguez Ragout with Poached Eggs from Amanda Hesser's and Merrill Stubbs' The Food52 Cookbook.

A Sandwich A Day: 'Merques' at Black Iris

New York Hannah Smith-Drelich Post a comment

A good merguez is hard to find. Thin and serpentine or broad and crumbly, this lamb or lamb-and-beef sausage can be too easily over-spiced and overcooked. The Merques sandwich ($7.50) at Black Iris in Fort Greene is none of the above. More

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 5 comments

There is something really satisfying about the one-pot meal. This happens to be true whether it's the depth of winter or the height of summer. One-pot meals don't have to be long simmering stews, or something that sticks to your ribs. This sausage and couscous recipe from Padma Lakshmi goes the Moroccan route, and it's perfect for this time of year. More

Dinner Tonight: Merguez Sausage with Collards and Couscous

Serious Eats Blake Royer 3 comments

Who knew that a spicy lamb sausage from northern Africa would get along so well with collard greens, a staple of Southern soul food? Knowing that sausages and greens are a natural combination, I trusted this recipe from Epicurious.com, which cooks the greens quickly by blanching then braising them with some of the cooking liquid, rather than the long, slow preparation I'm familiar with.

Snapshots from the South of France: Merguez Frites

Kerry Saretsky 5 comments

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. If you take one look at Merguez, and then one sniff, you’ll know nothing proves that old adage quite like this Moroccan sausage. The smoke comes from the cumin seed and the waft of the grill; the fire from the flames that lick its charred casing, and the burning heat of chili that you find within. If you read my weekly column French in a Flash, then you know that I tend to produce what might be called artistic French home cooking. And if you read that column you’ll also know that I have a French-Moroccan grandmother. What you may not know, my best worst-kept secret, is that I absolutely live and breathe for... More
