This is a hearty breakfast that traditionally was made up of leftovers from the night before. It is made up of three main parts - hogao, a kind of sofrito or salsa; calentado, a mixture of rice and beans; and Desayuno Trancado, thinly slice pork loin, sausage, and scrambled eggs. Makes a great breakfast spread for a special occasion or Sunday brunch. Serve with extra hogao, chopped cilantro, lime wedges, diced onions, arepas, queso fresco, and hot chocolate.
