Migas Breakfast Casserole

Migas Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast casseroles are just about one of my favorite things to make and eat (which is why I have about 4 billion versions).  I love them for breakfast, and we even make them for dinner too.  This one has the bells and whistles of migas and was a huge hit with my friends at church.  There wasn’t a single bite left!  Super easy, really yummy and my house smelled insanely good as this one baked.  You’re going to want to try this recipe!

This recipe serves about 12.

Shopping List
enough tortilla chips to cover the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish
8 eggs
12 slices of bacon (uncooked), chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped (remove seeds and ribs for less heat)
1½ tablespoons chili powder
8 green onions, chopped
1½ cups shredded Pepper Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease (I used Pam) a 9×13 baking dish.  Spread out a thick layer of tortilla chips across the bottom of your dish (they can overlap).  I used a potato masher to lightly break mine up in the dish.  Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, whisk your eggs together then add in your chopped bacon, chopped jalapeno, chili powder, green onions and Pepper Jack.  Stir this mixture together and then pour it down over the chips.

Pop your casserole in the oven and bake about 45 minutes or until the egg mixture is set and everything is bubbly.

Remove and serve immediately.

This recipe will be a HIT at your house!!

    I just saved this to take to a brunch next week. I am always looking for a non bread breakfast casserole. Thanks!

    Did you use regular or turkey bacon? Just trying to figure out if I should use the turkey bacon I have or if it would taste better to go grab some regular bacon.

      I used pork bacon in this recipe, but you could totally sub with turkey!

    This sounds great! I’m looking forward to making it. If you don’t cook the bacon before you put it in the casserole to bake, what keeps the casserole from getting greasy?

    This sounds like my kind of casserole! Yum!!

    i feel like the bacon doesn’t cook all the way – is there a trick or am i maybe using too much bacon? 🙁 This recipe looks so yummy and i REALLY want to try it!

      It does! At that temp and for that long, it cooks up perfectly 🙂 .

    Would a can of chopped green chiles work in place of the jalepeno?

    This looks so good! I love that the bacon doesn’t have to be precooked. Question, what happened to your printable that you can no longer remove images?

    • Mix and Match Mama December 6, 2017 at 2:50 pm

      I have no idea? That would be a Word Press thing.

      When you hit Print and the other screen pulls up, you can click beside the ‘image’ part (where it says 100%) and change that to 0 and the image goes away.

        Thank you 😉

          Thank you Kelly! That is an odd way to do it but it works!

    How’d I miss this yesterday? This was delicious! I remember strongly fighting the urge for a second piece!!

    I have no idea what Migas is, but it sounds delicious! Migas is a word I’ve never heard in my life. Is it a Texas thing? I’m over on the east coast.

    • Mix and Match Mama December 8, 2017 at 8:22 am

      It’s a Mexican breakfast 🙂 .

    I hadn’t heard of Migas before either (Midwestern gal here) so now I’ve googled all sorts of Migas variations and can’t wait to put my own little spin on this!
