Homesick Texan's Migas

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

I go through a fair number of corn tortillas; you'd think I'd attempt migas more often. When I found myself with a truly inordinate number of tortillas last week, it was time to make this Tex-Mex specialty of fried corn tortilla strips and eggs. This barebones recipe from the Homesick Texan is an excellent place to start. More

Hangover Helper: Migas at Cochineal, Marfa, TX

Drinks Carrie Vasios Mullins 4 comments

While many versions rely on greasy eggs or fried tortillas for flavor, Cochineal presents a large pile of gently scrambled eggs tossed with wide, soft strips of corn tortilla. What really sets these migas apart from others I've had is the quality of the vegetables. Cochineal has its own garden, and they put it to good use. The eggs are tossed with big pieces of juicy tomato, crisp red and green peppers, and deep purple onions. More

La Cocina de Consuelo: The Best Tex-Mex Breakfast in Austin?

Erin Zimmer 6 comments

The best breakfast tacos and migas in Austin? It was a difficult, tortilla-filled quest. So many taquerias and roadside stands claim to have the best. But we found one of our favorites at La Cocina de Consuelo, where you'll actually see a hair-netted Consuelo, or Connie (Rodriguez), in the kitchen making everything to order. If you get there before 11 a.m., she's wrapping breakfast burritos with her pressed-that-morning tortillas: steamy, chewy, and freckled with tiny brown bubbles. More

Mike and Patty's in Boston: Serious Breakfast (and Sandwiches) from a Seriously Tiny Kitchen

Carey Jones 7 comments

There are neighborhood cafés, and then there are neighborhood classics. The kind of local favorites where the staff gets to know your name, and you theirs. Where even though lines snake out the door, every regular considers the place his own unique find. And where the food is both honest and memorable, worth going back to—and not just because it’s around the corner. These institutions often take years to evolve. But Mike and Patty’s, opened eight months ago on a quiet corner in Boston’s Bay Village neighborhood, seems pretty close already. Its storefront may be tiny—an open kitchen behind the counter, one high table for a friendly six, and hardly enough room to turn around. What Mike and Patty’s... More

Dinner Tonight: Mushroom 'Migas'

Serious Eats Blake Royer 1 comment

There are two rather different dishes known as migas—there's a version from Spain, the original, which is made with leftover bread, garlic, and sometimes a little meat such as chorizo or bacon. But there's also the Tex-Mex style which replaces... More

©iStockphoto.com/MiquelMunill In the past two weeks I’ve twice cooked dinner for a group of six. For the first dinner (friends from high school) I tried new recipes and ended up happy with one and unhappy with the other; the second... More
