HAPPY FATHER'S DAY everyone!! Migas is one of my dad's favorite breakfast food. So what is 'Migas' you may ask? Well, migas is Spanish for 'crumbs', and according to the internets it is a Spanish dish well said, I would have said it was a Mexican dish but Spanish makes sense. As a child growing up in Monterrey, Mexico my mom would make Migas in the mornings or if she had had a long day we'd have it for dinner, but never twice a day. Since it was our favorite she made it every so often.
It is super easy to make all you will need is 3 eggs and 3 corn tortillas (preferably the tortillas that look yellow). I have seen other additions to the Migas such as vegetables and quite honestly that's not the real thing, that's another Mexican egg dish but not Migas. I added pieces of 'carne asada' (grilled meat) for decoration but the traditional dish doesn't have meat it only has salsa, but my dad can't really eat spicy stuff anymore for health reasons so no salsa :(
|Keep the egg to tortilla ratio the same|
- 3 eggs
- 3 corn tortillas (yellow corn tortillas)
- 4-5 tablespoons cooking oil (I used Grape Seed Oil)
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 slice grilled meat or brisket (optional)
- Pace salsa (optional) (I love Pace salsa and it's not spicy at all it has a very pleasant vegetable-y, tomato and pepper taste)
Cut 3 tortillas in half and repeat until they are in a triangle shape. In a separate bowl place your eggs and 2 tablespoons of milk and combine, the milk will help make the eggs fluffy. In a large skillet pour some cooking oil about 4-5 tablespoons and drop tortilla triangles in. Stir until they are covered in oil and begin to harden, pour egg mixture and stir. Make sure the tortillas are well combined with the egg. If you choose to add salsa to your Migas it would be after the egg is cooked, but if you choose to add meat add it while the egg is still cooking so that it is well combined.
