    BirdyBaker's Note:

    Tamago is Japanese for "egg". Tamago yaki is sushi using an egg, like a sushi omelette. I really love it for it's sweet taste and light texture. You need a tamago pan to make this recipe. Any type of stock can be used in place of the dashi for a less fishy taste. Sounds complicated, but after a bit of practice, it gets much easier.

      Thank you for this easy recipe! I just finished a roll. I'm alarmed at the nutrition label next to the recipe. I guess I have to share this.

      This is my favorite tamago recipe! I think the sugar amount is just fine, and I use cooking wine instead of mirin and chicken stock instead of dashi. Thank goodness I don't still live alone--I was making this 3 times a week back then!

      I think this recipe is so-so. It needs more sugar, next time I will double it. I had to look up the proper way of making it in youtube. Thanks for sharing.
