In a small bowl whisk the two eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a small skillet and melt the butter. Now add the whisked egg mixture and cook the eggs to scrambled eggs.
Now, take the tortilla shell and in the middle of the shell, spread one tablespoon of the fig spread. Next add the cheese. Now add the turkey bacon and egg.Top it off with the avocado. Now roll it up and place on a plate seam side down. Cut it in half.
