Crumbs Extreme&bath;as


Ways to prepare migas, there are many, these are the ones that are prepared in my family. The peculiarity of the migas of extremadura, is that they do not mix all the ingredients, everything is placed separately and not mixed with the own crumbs.

Maybe the amounts are a bit exaggerated, but it is that, when at home prepare crumbs is because we meet a lot of people and almost all of the world repeats. With these amounts you can eat 12 people... repeating...

It is a perfect meal for these cold coming and it is very typical to eat them at time of slaughter.

The best thing about this dish is that everyone can participate in the preparation, from chopping the stale bread that has been building up of what is left each day (now also sell the bread already chopped and bagged, but it has not so much charm) to fry all the ingredients (this makes my mother or my cousin) or move the crumbs (this takes care of my father).

The sardines, the enharinamos and fry in a separate pan.

Now, in a frying pan for crumbs, we take the oil in which we fried all the ingredients. When hot, add the mince and the chopped tomato, fry it and add a little water (half a glass). Here we begin to go throwing the crumbs, bit by bit, not all at once and stirring constantly to go wet, if we see they are being dried you can add a little more tomato.

The key to be good is to move them well.
