MIGAS OR SUNDANCE EGGS

Migas or Sundance Eggs is my contribution to "Weekend Breakfast Blogging #9" which was started by Nandita of "Saffron Trail".This month's host is Sig of "live to eat" and the theme is cooking with Eggs. Thanks for hosting Sigma!:)




Eggs: The eggciting and the incredible edible eggs as they say are a great source of protein.For more info about them,click on WIKI.




What's Migas/Migajas?
Migas/Migajas (or Sundance Eggs as it is called sometimes) is a tasty Tex Mex breakfast made popular by Spanish households in Texas,with crisp Tortilla topped with scrambled Eggs and assortment of vegs and served with re-fried beans.They also make this quick breakfast with either torn Tortillas or Tortilla chips and fry up with other ingredients or as dinner during Lent.(Robert Amaya) This recipe is adapted from a cookbook "The Tex Mex cookbook" by Robb Walsh.


Migas:




You Need:Makes two Migas



Two 6" flour Tortillas,1/2 cup Tomato chopped, few bottled Jalapeno rings,1/4 cup chopped white or Green onions,2 Eggs,cilantro, 1/2 tsp Mexican seasoning or cumin seeds pd,1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese.





Crisp the Tortillas on the pan by spraying oil or baking.Make scrambled Eggs with 2 tsp water and salt until done and keep aside.To make Migas, place a Tortilla on a place,spread 1/4th of cheese,and layer half of everything you have set aside ending with cheese on top.





Repeat with the other Tortilla and put them under the grill for few mins until the cheese melts.Serve immediately with chilled glass of juice.You don't need to add Re-fried beans to it in the weekday mornings,do ya?;P





Migas getting grilled!!





Vegetarians: Skip the Eggs and add sauteed bell peppers etc and do the rest as above.Hope you do try!:)

That was one great looking and tasty Migas we have ever had for breakfast.Hope you try them for your family!:))

Sundance eggs!! Thats an incredulous name! The lovely colours make me dance:)) Now I know what to do with left over chappatis :):) hope hubby is not reading this!!

Asha said...

Thanks Linda,tastes great too.Good for weekend breakfast,leisure cooking:)

Hi J!HAHA!! Taste makes you dance too:))
It's Tortilla J which has more fat to crisp when cooked than our chapatis.Using thin Chapatis is a great idea too,try it.

Hi Asha!
I like eggs, but eggs don't like me, so I use it occasionally.
Your photos are very inspiring.
I love your inspiring and wonderful blog.
Peace to you!

sunita's world said...

Asha, I love this kind of dishes with lots of vegies incorporated in them to form a one-dish meal...thanks...

Asha said...

Hi Krystyna,thank you!:)
You can skip Eggs and add any kind of vegs and beans you like too.Tastes equally good.

Hello Sunita,you are right.So many good things go in there,it feels good and it fills you up too for a brunch.Hope you try:)
