New potatoes, bell peppers, sausage and barbecue sauce unite to create one amazing brunch meal.

Here’s a twist on the classic breakfast potato hash that gets a kick of flavor from smoky sausage and barbecue sauce. This sweet potato BBQ hash makes for an easy and hearty, one-pan brunch dish, especially when served with some sunny-side-up eggs on top. You can use any barbecue sauce that you please; my favorite is Stubb’s Sweet Heat Sauce.

Migas aren’t just for the morning: A simple, tasty Tex-Mex favorite that’s great at any hour of the day

Migas aren’t just for the morning: A simple, tasty Tex-Mex favorite that’s great at any hour of the day

Way out yonder in the Texas hill country (namely in Austin), a little dish called “migas” is an item found on almost every restaurant menu. I’d actually never even heard of it before visiting the area.

“Migas” is Spanish for “crumbs.” This simple Tex-Mex dish is comprised of eggs, sauteed tomato/onion/jalapeno mixture, fried tortillas or tortillas chips (hence, the “crumbs”) and cheese scrambled together, and it’s simply delicious.

What’s great about migas is that they can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and even make for a great pre-hangover meal after a long night out at the bars (which is why you can find many a person ordering them at the late-night diners in Austin). Quick to whip up, migas take less than 10 minutes to prepare and you can even cheat and use salsa from the jar instead of chopping and cooking the vegetable components. And for added flavor, some cooks fry up Mexican chorizo with the vegetables.

Brighten up brunch: Spring Veggie Frittata recipe

frittata

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, no matter the time. For this recipe, my inspiration was the wonderful produce available this time of year and my deep affection for egg-based breakfast/brunch foods. I hit up my local produce stand, then got in the kitchen and got my frittata on!

This frittata recipe is super simple, even easier then making an omelet and without all the flipping and fuss. I love the array of colorful vegetables that are now available at the produce stands and just about all of them would be great in this dish. I used almost every color in the rainbow in my frittata: a yellow tomato, red cubanelle pepper (comparable to a bell pepper, but a bit sweeter), verdent spinach and arugula, and red (actually, purple) onion.
