Let’s chat about these ingredients. You are of course free to omit anything that you don’t care for. Some other items you could easily substitute for the onion would be green or red pepper, or even scallions. You can use Egg Beaters or a similar product instead of fresh eggs if you wish.
1. In a bowl, crack open the two eggs and add a splash of milk. Whisk quickly.
2. Place a frying pan on medium heat. Scramble the eggs to your liking, adding the onion at this time if you wish. If adding onion, just toss it in the scrambled mixture in step one. Place the scrambled eggs on a low heat to keep warm and set aside.
3. In another bowl, add the diced tomato. Rinse 3-4 basil leaves and rough chop them before adding them to the mixture as well. Mix. If you wish for even more flavor, you can add a splash of olive oil here as well.
4. Add some non stick cooking spray to a clean skillet and add the tortilla shell. Allow it to become lightly toasted.
5. Assemble the tomato basil breakfast burrito by placing the tortilla on a place and topping it with the warm scrambled eggs and tomato and basil mixture.
6. Wrap the burrito tightly. It is now ready to be enjoyed!
