Test Kitchen Tips
"Migas" means "crumbs" in Spanish. For a migas twist, swap a cup of torn tortillas or coarsely crushed tortilla chips for the biscuit mix. Then bake till set (it may take a little longer).
For individual portions that kids will love, bake in greased muffin cups until golden brown, 15-20 minutes.
