Lenten Breakfast Recipe *Migas*

I don't know about you but on Friday mornings, during the Lenten season, I usually have a hard time deciding what to make! On a regular morning Eliada loves to ask for either pancakes or ham and eggs. Well, pancakes okay, but I CAN'T EAT ANYMORE PANCAKES! And ham? It's too expensive, plus, no meat during Lent. So, the next thing I turn to is MIGAS!

What the heck are Migas? Well, it is a traditional Spanish dish that was prepared to use leftover bread and to make the eggs last a bit longer. So it was more of a mushy dish and often served with pork as well. But then we now have the Tex-Mex version, which takes away the "meat" during lent and uses strips of tortillas in place of the bread and most Hispanics add onion, tomato in a salsa and ofcourse scrambeled with eggs. And those are the Migas I know.

So, this morning, I put these clips together of me making them. Hope you enjoy and let me know if you whip them up tomorrow morning, it's Friday! Be sure to subscribe to my channel for more videos.


2 Eggs
2 Corn Tortillas
2 Tbls Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Optional mix-ins: tomato, onions, bell pepper, etc
Optional toppings: cheese or salsa

  1. Heat pan to a mid-high heat and add oil
  2. Cut/slice tortillas and add to pan when hot
  3. Scramble eggs and season
  4. Stir/flip tortillas (add in any mix-ins if desiered)
  5. When at desiered cripy-ness (or leave soft) add scrambed eggs
  6. Mix and serve!
  7. Add any toppings and enjoy!

Like I said, there are so many various of this recipe. I totally love The Pioneer Woman's version, but I would probably never eat them like this, it looks delicious! I googled Migas and there are some other pics that came up! Which version would you try?
