1. Spicing Up Classic Toast Toppers: Elevate Your Avocado Game

When it comes to brunch, few dishes capture the hearts (and stomachs) of Aussies quite like avocado toast. By adding a splash of hot sauce, you can transform this beloved classic into a tantalising treat that excites the senses.

Here are some ideas for adding hot sauce to avocado toast:

  • Simple but sophisticated: Mash some avocado with a bit of sea salt, black pepper, and a few drops of bright and tangy Green Chilli sauce from Gods of Sauces. Spread it on your favourite artisanal bread and enjoy the zesty kick!
  • Guacamole toast: Create a flavourful avocado guacamole by mixing in diced tomatoes, onions, coriander, lime juice, and your choice of hot sauce. Adjust the heat level based on your preference.
  • For the cheese lovers: Pile your toast with creamy avocado, crumbled feta or goat cheese, and a drizzle of fruity habanero sauce for a unique and delightful flavour.

2. Bring the Heat to Your Eggs: Fiery Benedicts and Scrumptious Shakshuka

Classic egg dishes like Eggs Benedict and Shakshuka offer a canvas for culinary creativity and bold flavour combinations. Adding hot sauces to these dishes enhances the flavour profile, elevates the taste, and delights the palate.

Hot sauce-infused egg dish ideas:

  • Spicy Eggs Benedict: Drizzle your perfectly poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce with a chipotle or jalapeño hot sauce for a smoky, spicy twist.
  • Sizzling Scrambled Eggs: Mix hot sauce directly into your scrambled eggs while cooking for an invigorating, heat-packed breakfast.
  • Fiery Shakshuka: Create a spicy tomato sauce base for your Shakshuka by incorporating a bold, flavourful hot sauce while sautéing your tomatoes, peppers, onions, and garlic. The Habanero Passion from Gods of Sauces would make a fiery (and flavourful) addition!

3. Supercharge Your Sides: Add Some Sizzle to Your Brunch Additions

Level up your brunch game by taking your sides from simple to sensational. Adding hot sauces to classic brunch accompaniments will surprise and delight your taste buds.

Some spicy brunch side ideas:

  • Fiery Home Fries: Toss your potatoes in olive oil, chopped parsley, a dash of sea salt, and a tangy hot sauce before roasting until crisp and golden.
  • Sizzling Mushrooms: Enhance the earthy flavour of sautéed mushrooms by adding a smoky hot sauce, like a chipotle-infused option, for an extra kick.
