    Hello Kitty with cupcakes's Note:

    A Japanese style omelet is called dashi-maki-tamago or tamago-yaki. This omelet is often served for breakfast in Japan and it is one of the most popular menu items for bento, Japanese box lunch. This recipe usually requires a rectangular omelet pan but they are unusual outside of Japan or a professional kitchen so I make it with a regular round pan. It tastes just as good but looks a little different.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 2 tablespoons dashi, stock* (very authentic) (optional)
    • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil (enough to just cover bottom of pan)


    1. 1
      Beat the eggs in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Add sugar, Dashi, Soy sauce to the bowl and mix well.
    3. 3
      Heat oil in an omelet pan.
    4. 4
      For an easy omelet just pour the whole mixture into a large pan and lift up the edges to let the wet egg run underneath. Take off the heat just before top is firm. A more advanced and authentic cooking requires a rectangular omelet pan and folding/rolling the egg.
    5. 5
      * I buy the dashi as I would chicken bouin from the asian grocer and then usually sprinkle a pinch or less into the mix rather than mix the liquid form. It really helps the flavor round out.

      This is good!! The soy sauce taste was very lite which I liked. I didn't have any Dashi so I had to omit it. II agree with kittycatmom that it needs something else. Maybe some green onions or cheddar cheese. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Spring '09

      Just delicious! I love eggs like this. I ate these often when I was growing up, but when I made them I always felt something was just "missing" I still don't know what I was missing, but the flavor was spot on!!! So good! Thanks Kitty!!! This will be made often. Made for 2009 Spring
