Shrimpy Breakfast Burrito

I had some leftover shrimp from last night's quesadillas and had a great idea to make a breakfast burrito with them for my husband. He loved it.

Ingredients:
Leftover Old Bay seasoned shrimp, chopped
1 green onion, chopped
2 large eggs
1 tortilla (I used my low-carb wheat Tam-X-icos)
salt and pepper

Crack the eggs into a bowl, season with salt and pepper and whisk with a fork. Set aside.

In a skillet over medium low heat, add a pat of butter. Once the butter melts, add the shrimp to re-heat. Then add the green onion and saute the two for just a bit, less than a minute. Add the eggs and scramble the mixture slowly. You never want to scramble eggs real fast over high heat. They'll become rubbery and that is not good. Be patient and scramble slowly over low heat.

While the eggs are cooking, heat a tortilla in the microwave for 30 seconds to soften it. Add some shredded cheese on the tortilla. Place the cooked eggs and shrimp over the cheese. Add a few drops of hot sauce. Roll up the tortilla into a buritto and enjoy!

Obviously, if you have enough shrimp leftover to make two burritos, go for it. I just had a few leftover.
