Hands-down a bestseller, our Lamb* Merguez Sausage recipe has been refined over the years and is much loved by our restaurant community.
Native, heritage breed lamb shoulder coarsely ground and seasoned with our house blend of freshly ground spices, fresh chillies, garlic and coriander.
Delicious grilled on the barbecue. Serve with flatbreads or a soft baguette, a sweet and tangy citrus slaw, cooling cucumber and mint yoghurt dip or garlic mayonnaise and watercress. A spicy breakfast twist with fried eggs or sausage lengths chopped into a Moroccan tagine.
The possibilities are many as chef Henry Harris shares:
"The Harris family favourite is Swaledale’s Lamb Merguez Sausages grilled on the barbecue and served in a split baguette that has been slathered with aïoli along with a handful of roquette leaves - deliciously complex in its simplicity.
I was introduced to Lamb Merguez in Paris on a market trip as a trucker's snack where pommes frites were added. At 4am with a cold beer it was memorable. Make chips and do the same or long thin roast potatoes work very nicely too.
The warm spiciness and meat juices that cooking these sausages delivers makes them a joy to us. Being chipolata in size they don’t take too long to cook - briskly in a heavy frying pan is excellent or on a ridged cast iron grill. Outdoors on a BBQ but watch the flames as the juices contain some fat which can make for a dramatic production!
Rolled into a flatbread with feta, red onion, fresh parsley and mint salad and some Greek yoghurt seasoned with fresh mint and a little harissa. Grilled lightly and cut into short lengths and added to a slow-braised shoulder of lamb. Grill them and serve alongside a butterflied leg of lamb to feed more people! Grill lamb sausages and cut into short lengths and serve as a companion to oysters, a bite of hot sausage washed down with a briny oyster or vice versa.
Take equal quantities of Lamb Merguez and The Cumberland Sausage - skin and mix them together and use to make sausage rolls.

"These sausages are absolutely delicious - so juicy and well flavoured. We felt the seasoning was perfectly balanced, delivering a spicy kick and well balanced seasoning. Truly delicious and authentically flavoured sausages that we absolutely adored."
*Swaledale lambs roam free across vast distances, migrating between valleys and hill tops, foraging as they go. The limestone pastures of the Yorkshire Dales are home to a unique range of herbs, grass and wildflowers, the cocktail of which bestows the lamb with a rich, deep colour to the meat and distinctive flavour. Robust and slightly sweet in character, the Swaledale lamb also has a subtle herbal undertone; the provenance is unmistakably Yorkshire. Swaledale Lamb Merguez Sausages are Always Fresh Never Frozen®, handmade in small batches, vacuum packed, and shipped in recyclable packaging to arrive safely insulated and ready to enjoy.
