It does not take much to make me a satisfied diner. Sausages are pretty much on top of my happy food list. Looking back on this Blog (six years???), I mentioned my favorite kind of sausage a few times already, so I added some links on top of a few images. In case you have not read those posts....
Rooted in north African cuisine, the french made this lamb based sausage one of their own I think. When in bigger cities, you'll find many street vendors offering a Merguez sandwich. But even here in Jarnac, it's readily available and I had some great varieties in Las Vegas and Calgary. So pretty much it's become a global sausage. The quality does vary and today's came from a butcher who uses natural sheep casing. And they are porc free. Naturally.
Today's lunch of Merguez came with roasted red peppers and some spicy mustard.
As I said, simple stuff makes me happy.
