Does anybody know where I can buy Merguez sausages. I've googled and come up with ASDA but we don't have an ASDA near us and I don't fancy ordering them on line and having them delivered - any ideas?

I had to google this, doodles - it sparked my curiosity and spared me the tennis. It seems you could make your own by stuffing mutton, fat (unspecified) and some spices into a lamb's intestine casing. Lots of recipes online :D .

Apparently it's also French police slang for a car which has been modified 'to enhance its suitability for use in crimes'.

I'm sure there is a joke there but I can't see it at the moment.

They seem to have several shops as well as online ordering.

Might make the cost per sausage a little prohibitive :lol:

I did buy some North African sausages from Morrisons some time back. Didn't like them because they were sweet. Prefer the 'chorizo/ spanish style' paprika ones. Waitrose are also doing a new bbq range.

Pictures doodles' butcher stuffing mutton and fat into lamb intestines. :lol:

Agree local butchers usually the best - use them or lose them and we will all be the poorer I say.

Enjoy them doodles - it's certainly BBQ weather so making the most of it here too.

(and if anyone has any vegetarian recipes which don't involve soya mince or things disguised as burgers or sausages I would be interested - don't want to hijack the thread but starting a separate one seems daft. I like courgettes and aubergines done on it; and don't mind a bit of advance prep).

The butcher is also doing me a butterflied shoulder of lamb which I am going to marinate in lemon juice, garlic and olive oil - well it is Bastille weekend and the whole reason we are having this BBQ is that DH is a confirmed Francophile :roll: :roll:

Actually the Merguez and a decent piece of lamb from the butcher is going to work out cheaper than going to the supermarket and buying lots of bits and pieces to cook. I normally use the butcher weekly so why I didn't think of him in the first place is beyond me :oops: :oops:

I have a veggie son Amber so am up for some veggie recipes too.

We BBQ fish for him as he does eat this occasionally and Quorn do some rather nice (apparently) sticky fillets which he really likes. Otherwise for him we do stuffed mushrooms, haloumi marinated in olive oil, garlic and lemon, and vegetable kebabs using courgettes, aubergines, tomatoes, peppers and onions and sometimes add bits of haloumi to them too.

With veggie food for the BBQ I find marinating for a couple of hours is the key otherwise things either cook too quickly and end up cremated or go like cardboard.

For veggies you can make quesadillas. Two soft tortilla wraps with veg, cheese, spinach, spices or whatever you fancy in between - like a sandwich. Plenty of cheese so they stick together and then just very quickly on the BBQ. Lovely with salsa and sour cream.
