To make tamagoyaki, thin layers of cooked eggs are rolled together into one delicate omelet. It’s light and a touch sweet, making it perfect for the Japanese breakfast table. Slideshow: More Omelet Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with the mirin, soy sauce and salt. 


Step 2    

Brush a 10-inch nonstick skillet with oil. Add one-third 
of the eggs and swirl the skillet to evenly coat. Cook over 
moderate heat until the egg is almost set, about 1 minute. Using a spatula, roll up the omelet and push it to the side of the skillet. Brush the skillet with more oil, then add another one-third of the eggs, lifting the rolled omelet so the uncooked egg flows underneath it. Cook until the egg is almost set, about 1 minute. Roll up the first omelet in the cooked egg, 
forming a second layer; push to 
the side of the skillet. Repeat this process one more time with more oil and the remaining eggs. Turn out the omelet onto 
a work surface and slice 1 inch thick. Serve warm.
