Wakey lass Lisa's Note:
Here's a simple tapas dish thats big on flavour. Can be eaten the traditional Spanish way with fried eggs & sliced fried Spanish chorizo for breakfast/supper. Or a tasty alternative to croutons, sprinkled on salads. It is better to use at least 2 day old bread, use the crusts too, but do dice very small or even make into breadcrumbs - just make sure it doesn't burn. Smoked bacon is better to use that plain bacon as it goes so well with the garlic. Use olive oil rather than extra virgin olive oil, use enough oil to cover the bottom of a big heavy bottomed pan. Stir the breadcrumbs constantly to make sure they're evenly coated in oil. I use a pair of scissors to cut the smoked bacon & I always use streaky (around 8-10 rashers) As for parsley I add that right at the very end just before it's served on to plates or tapas dishes. Optional. A fried egg & sliced fried chozio placed on top of the migas makes a delicious breakfast/supper. I first tried "Migas" back in 1988 while on holiday in Blanes. We stayed in a huge apartment in a Spanish complex - imagine the aroma while travelling up & down in the lifts......garlic, sausage, fish - there was something different on each floor. At the time of 1988 Blanes was very much a traditional Spanish fishing village, with only a handful of other nationalities. So eating out was tapas, steak restaurants or the typical American style burger joints. So we stuck to Spanish & coped very well with the abundant colourful & tasty tapas dishes available. Back in 1988 there was no translated text in several languages to accomodate our lack of not learning the lingo, so it was a case of choosing from a book of photographs & hoping for the best. Thankfully, 21 years on & the lingo has come on in leaps & bounds. The food is still fabulous, if not better & at least I can now ask for tapas & no longer have to point to a photgraph. Anyway, it's delicious - try it I'm sure you'll love it!
