Migas – An American spin on a Traditional Spanish Dish

image_pdfimage_print

Migas are a traditional food of Spain and Portugal  that was originally served in the morning as breakfast using leftover bread.  It was sort of a bread pudding with meat on the side.   The word migas literally means “crumbs”.  In Spain tradition started with the shepherds on the plains.  All they usually had was a little stale bread, garlic and olive oil, and an occasional pepper.  They would cook it all up over the flames and make a hearty meal.  As time moved forward, meats and other things were added to it and the tradition changed.

The Spanish brought the dish to Mexico where it consists of fried, leftover tortillas that are scrambled together with eggs.  Moving North to Texas a lit bit later – some folks will say migas were invented in Austin.  Well, maybe the way they are eaten now was influenced by those Texans and certainly they helped to popularize it!

So now you’re wondering, WHAT IS MIGAS??  Well keep reading and I’ll tell you!
