Migas, a typical Spanish dish whose literal translation means breadcrumbs, yet is so much more. Many countries have dishes that use up stale bread, as once upon a time nothing was ever thrown away….. it is rather a shame that we now throw away vast quantities of foodstuffs without a second thought!
So what are migas? Well, basically breadcrumbs with a little onion, garlic and local sausages. The breadcrumbs get their flavour by soaking up the fats from the meats. Just trust me for now, properly done they are delicious.
I have two recipes for you today for making migas, a quick version and the traditional one. As I suspect you will prefer the quick version I will start with that!
