Corn Tortilla, scrambled eggs, mushroom, tomatoes, capsicum with paprika and parmesan cheese

6 yeas ago when I was in Italy - I was served this dish for breakfast in a small  family run cafe in a small village called Bartolommeo - this recipe just takes scrambled eggs to a whole new level and the parmesan cheese give it its unique flavour - a perfect breakfast to start your weekend.
 
Ingredients:
 
2 large organic eggs - ( I am greedy so it has to be large)
1 corn tortilla cut into thin strips
2table spoon of good quality olive oil
2-3 cubes of butter
Handful of chopped spring onion
4-5 diced wild mushroom
Half pepper - thinly sliced
1 red or green chilli finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Finely chopped herbs of your choice.
1 tsp of paprika
Remember you can use any vegetable or even diced chicken if you like.
 
In a large pan put 1 tsp of olive oil and fry the strips of tortilla until they are crisp and lightly golden brown - keep aside
Then put in the remaining oil and butter and add the chillies followed by the vegetables and saute for -2-3 mins
Now add the fried tortilla back in the pan with the vegetables followed by the two beaten mix and fold lightly to get to a creme scrambles egg consistency
Season with salt and pepper
 
Serve with loads of grated parmesan cheese and finely chopped herbs of your choice I used basil.
