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!!
