Recipe Notes

Meal Prep and Storage

    • To Prep-Ahead: One of my favorite things to meal prep for the week is breakfast tacos. Simply assemble your tacos as if you were about the eat them (leaving out the avocado and tomatoes, of course!), wrap them in a bit of aluminum foil or parchment paper-foil, and store for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.

    • To Store: Keep leftover eggs in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days. If already assembled, follow the instructions above.

    • To Freeze: Scrambled eggs freeze beautifully. Simply place migas in a freezer-safe bag or container with as little air as possible and place in the freezer for 3 to 4 months.
        • To Reheat: Reheating Migas Eggs: If you just have the migas eggs you can add them to a skillet with a touch of oil, cover them, and heat on low heat for a few minutes.

        • Reheating Migas Tacos: If you want to reheat your migas tacos that have been wrapped in foil then preheat your oven or toaster oven to 325 degrees and warm up your tacos for 10-15 minutes.
