Migas is a traditional dish originating from Spain and Portugal with a few different variations stretching across the globe to Mexico and even Texas. This hearty breakfast or brunch recipe primarily consists of scrambled eggs intermingled with crispy torn pieces of bread or tortillas, which adds a unique twist to your average scrambled eggs serving.
In some regions, migas can also include a variety of savory ingredients such as peppers, onions, tomatoes, and chorizo. It's a versatile dish that can be easily customized to personal tastes, making it a delightful comfort food in any culture it's found.
Migas, a Spanish and Portuguese style dish made with bread or tortillas and a variety of fillings, doesn't have a long shelf life due to the fresh ingredients in it. When made fresh at home, migas should be eaten within 24 hours for the best quality and flavor. If you are unable to eat it all in one day, it can be stored in the fridge for up to two days but may not taste as fresh and the texture could change. If frozen, migas can last up to 2 months but the texture and flavor may be greatly impacted.
How do you tell if Migas is bad?
If your migas have an odd smell, changed in color or texture (became damp, soggy or dry), it's likely it has spoiled. If you notice any mold, get rid of the dish right away. When in doubt, remember the saying: 'When in doubt, throw it out!' It's better to err on the side of caution with food safety.
Tips for storing Migas to extend shelf life
• Always store your migas in a tightly sealed container to keep it as fresh as possible.
• Try to eat migas as soon as possible after making it, the freshness of the ingredients means it doesn't keep as long as other foods.
• If you want to freeze migas, consider freezing the cooked ingredients separately and combining them when you're ready to eat. This could help maintain the texture and flavor of the dish.
• Refrigerate within two hours of cooking to slow down the growth of bacteria.
