Easy family project Ingredients: 4 eggs 1 teaspoon of soy sauce 1-2 tablespoons of Mirin (rice wine), Sake, or Maple Syrup Butter or oil Cooking Utensils: Mixing bowl, spatula, or chopsticks for rolling the omelet frying pan (square Japanese frying pan or small round pan). thumbnail_img_2446 Let the eggs sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes because warmer eggs whip up to a greater volume. Cold eggs hitting a hot pan will produce a tough omelet. Do not salt the raw eggs as that will toughen them, too. Mix the eggs with soy sauce and Mirin, or Sake or Maple syrup. thumbnail_img_2450 Get the frying pan hot and add little butter or oil. When the pan is hot, pour or ladle in a thin layer of the egg mixture. Regulate the temperature (probably to medium heat), so the eggs are cooking but not burning.

When the edges looked cooked but not too brown, gently lift the omelet with a spatula and roll it to one end. Add more oil or butter all over the pan, making sure that even under the rolled-up omelet, there is grease added. If you have any questions, please contact me at mborn@kckpl.org
