Rolled Sweet Omelet (Japan)

(4 servings)

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 hanpen (pureed and steamed fish cake)
  • 1/2 cup dashi soup stock
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsps soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Put hanpen cake in blender and chop well.

To blender, now add soup stock, sugar, salt, soy sauce, and eggs -- stir well.

Pour this mixture into a flat slightly oiled baking pan and bake for 15 minutes at 250 degrees.

Take the omelet out from the pan when it's still hot. Now place the omelet on top of a bamboo mat and roll it. Leave alone until it cools.

Remove the bamboo mat and cut the omelet into half inch slices.

This recipe known as datemaki may seem strange as fish for breakfast is not correct in America. Remembering that hanpen and soup stock are for flavor only allows you to replace them with other flavors you enjoy. The feeling and shape of the omelet should not be effected.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank skibunny for this recipe.
