Smart Merguez-Inspired Beef Patties

with Lemony Mayo and Feta Side Salad

Merguez is a spicy sausage used in North African cuisine. It’s usually made with mutton or lamb but we're swapping in beef and making patties in place of classic sausages! Briny feta and bright lemon add loads of flavour to both the patties and the salad!
