Sunny's "Scrambled Eggs with Personality" — Meatless Monday

Forget about the dry, tough scrambled eggs of breakfasts past. Sunny Anderson is introducing a new recipe that promises light, fluffy results full of flavor every time. Packed with crunchy tortilla strips, tender vegetables and pepper Jack cheese, her San Antonio Migas (pictured above) from Food Network Magazine are next-level eggs with Southwestern flair. "Migas are scrambled eggs with personality and texture," Sunny recently told the magazine, which means they're similar to the classic morning meal your family craves but dressed up with creative ingredients and textures.

The secret to making migas is layering flavors and incorporating them into whisked eggs before they're scrambled. To start her 20-minute recipe, Sunny sautes tortilla strips until they're buttery and crisp, then adds colorful bell peppers, green chiles and sweet onions. Together, the chips and vegetables will offer both crunchy and tender textures in the finished dish, while the eggs will be soft after just a few minutes of stirring. Be sure to lower the heat on the stove once you add the eggs to the pan, as too high a flame can dry them out quickly. Before serving, mix in chopped tomatoes, then top with creamy cheese for a fresh, bold finish.

Sunny shared this recipe in a recent issue of Food Network Magazine, but it's also a standout favorite in her first-ever cookbook, Sunny's Kitchen: Easy Food for Real Life. Head to the Food Network Store to buy the book and get more of her go-to recipes for deliciously effortless dishes.
