Migas

If you have never been to Texas, you might be unfamiliar with the dish called Migas. It is a breakfast dish, however it is commonly eaten by folks for dinner as often as it is for breakfast, such as our dinner tonight. It is a versatile dish, that can be utilized to finish off any left over scraps of food you might have in the fridge. The base component is eggs (and sausage in my version) and then anything you wish can be added to it. I trust you can find it elsewhere, I just haven’t seen it outside of TX.

We eat ours with flour tortillas, basically making breakfast tacos. I serve these with breakfast potatoes as a side along with salsa.

A couple of popular variations include adding green and or red bell peppers. We have done that, but prefer ours without If you do, add them when you do the onions to the pan. You can also easily remove the sausage altogether.

We had some leftover migas, and my wife asked if I could make a few more tacos with them, then freeze. I did, and if it works out, she will have some awesome breakfast tacos to through in the microwave before heading off to work. I just hope they freeze well.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the olive oil with the butter. Add sausage, chorizo, jalapenos and onions and cook until the meat is cooked through.  Then add tortilla pieces, stirring gently to combine.

Reduce heat to low. When the heat has decreased, pour egg mixture into skillet. Stir gently,  folding mixture as it cooks. Add in grated cheese and chopped cilantro, and stir to combine.
