Egg recipes-Wafu Tamago-Yaki in Spanish Style


Here’s one delicious Tamago-Yaki recipe. This idea comes from a Spanish omelet. Mix lots of vegetable into eggs and pan fry or bake them. Compare to Japanese Tamago-yaki, it doesn’t require a square fry pan. You don’t need any skill to do rolling egg sheet motion. Simply pour egg mixture into a pan and start heating. There’s only one problem. Since it doesn’t let you stir the mixture while heating, egg can burn very easily at the bottom. Don’t worry! Having potato crust at the bottom part, you can make thoroughly cooked omelet without letting it burn. Also you can enjoy hashed-brown-potato like crust at the bottom of the omelet! I used a touch of soy sauce while stir frying shimeji mushrooms. It gives wafu flavor to your omelet! You can either serve it hot or at room temperature. It has lots of color including yellow, green, red. Packing into bento box is also very suitable!
