Japanese Egg Sandwich


- 4 large eggs

- Enhance the flavors with a tablespoon of Japanese mayonnaise, like the renowned Kewpie brand.

- 1 teaspoon soy sauce

- Salt and pepper to taste

- 8 slices of Japanese milk bread or white bread

- Optional toppings: cucumber slices, tomato slices, lettuce leaves


How to Cook:

Step 1: Prepare the Scrambled Eggs

  • Carefully crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them vigorously until they are thoroughly blended - omelet beckons!

  • Lazily heating a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat, I give the pan a light coating of cooking spray or just enough oil to keep things from sticking.

  • Gently pour the beaten eggs into the pan and wait patiently for a moment or two without stirring. Just let them be until the base begins to solidify - take care not to disturb it.

  • Casually stirring the eggs with a spatula, break them apart into tiny pieces. Making sure to be gentle, you create smooth curds ready to be cooked.

  • Keep stirring and blending until the eggs are cooked but still a little saucy. They should be fluffy yet not too solid, like clouds in the sky.

  • Oh, quickly now - take the skillet off the heat and give your scrambled eggs a chance to cool down.

Step 2: Season and Combine the Eggs

  • Grab a different bowl and mix the Japanese mayo, soy sauce, salt, and pepper until it looks like an umami-flavored masterpiece. Adding just a pinch of each component brings out the flavors in ways that will make you want to do a happy dance. There's no other way - this combination is unbeatable!

  • Toss the scrambled eggs into the bowl and get stirring! Mix it well so that all those flavors are nicely spread out. Nothing worse than a clump of salt or a slump of pepper in your eggs - an unflavourful breakfast disaster! Besides, nobody likes their food tasting like an uneven lottery wheel. So take your time here and spend extra minutes ensuring each spoonful's seasoned to perfection.
