Tamagoyaki (Japanese Sweet Omelet)

Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"Fast, easy, simple, delicious. Even a klutz like me can manage to make it in no time. It adds a whole lot of flavor to those every day eggs. I made this recipe this morning. It was delicious and left me wanting more. Traditional tamagoyaki is not as flat and uses several eggs, but this is great when you just want a little snack or for breakfast. Kids with a sweet tooth will love it."

I made this recipe and it's not bad, but it's not quite to my liking so I'll play with the ingredients a bit. It was nice to try a simple recipe for one person.

An interesting blend of flavors that work well together.

I love the balance between the sweet sugar and soy sauce. In other recipes i find there's too much of either one and it throws off the recipe. Ling ling approved

It tasted great!!!
