TAMAGOYAKI

Japanese Omelette

This masterpiece of a recipe is perfect and different for a person -like me- who doesn't like eggs to consume those bad boys. This really is a staple for a farm or homestead and will be a staple of my soon to be dream life. 

Tamagoyaki (Ta-mah-go-yah-key) uses all the ingredient that you would get from a farm AND it tastes delicious. Tamagoyaki is sooooo good! It melts in your mouth and is fluffy having the texture to more of a cake them an egg (sweeter like a cake too).

Tamagoyaki

Tamagoyaki is a rolled up omelette (or omelet for american speakers). I'm actually an american speaker I just like the British/french spelling :) #fakefan. Tamagoyaki translates to grilled/fried egg, it is commonly eaten for breakfast, in a bento box (Lunch box), side dish, or even a filling for sushi.

Preparation

There are many different ways to prepare Tamagoyaki. The one I am referring to is more Americanized I guess you can say.
