      Aussie Swap #65: Couldn't locate the piri-piri sauce but after a little research found that one of the spicy pepper sauces in our fridge would make a great substitute - AND IT DID!! What a delicious and flavorful/spicy dish!! We made these for breakfast along side some spicy sausage and eggs - delicious!!

      One of my favourite ways to have potatoes since I first tried it at my Portuguese friend's. My friend puts everything together from the beginning, including the sauce, but this is even better. Thanks for sharing this winner!
      Made for PAC Spring 2012

      *Made for Australia/ NZ Swap #64* Looked up Piri-Piri and KNEW we couldn't handle that much heat, so swapped out for Frank's RedHot -- much milder but flavorful. Loved the texture of the first-roasted potatoes -- lovly to have enough left-over for another meal ! Thanks for posting, Jubes !
