Merguez (pronounced /mɛərˈɡɛz/) is a red, spicy mutton- or beef-based fresh sausage in North African cuisine. It is also popular in France, Israel, and northern Europe.

Merguez is a fresh sausage made with lamb, beef, or a mixture stuffed into a lamb-intestine casing. It is heavily spiced with chili pepper or harissa, which gives it its characteristic piquancy and red color, as well as other spices such as sumac, fennel, and garlic.

Merguez is usually eaten grilled or with couscous. Dried merguez is used to add flavor to tagines. It is also eaten in sandwiches and with french fries. In Germany, it is often grilled on a schwenker.
