Sauté the mushrooms and 1/2 the green onions in the butter until onion is tender.

Spoon about 1/4 cup of the filling in center of each tortilla and roll up.

Sprinkle with remaining green onions.

Recipe Background

I usually make these for a Sunday brunch while we are at the beach. Mimosas go well with them. My mom has made them using crepes instead of tortillas. They are delicious either way .... and making crepes are a pain in the butt.
