  • “Beautiful! I made as described other than I didn’t have tomato chili sauce so used a blend of ketchup and chili sauce that I thought would be similar. It made a quick and delicious main course served along with a salad.”

  • “One of those fabulous recipes that you are dying to find on Zaar to keep and get lots of GREAT compliments from friends and family! LOL! Made exactly as posted but I DID use a griddle pan on top of the barbie to cook them. I served these as a main course meal with a tomato salsa salad and lovely egg noodles – this was DEVOURED by Malcolm and my guests! (And me of course!) Made for Spicy Food in the Photos Forum for June 2009 – thanks AGAIN Bergy for such a great recipe – saved and a keeper for sure! FT:-)”
