Japanese Scrambled Eggs

Believe it or not, soy sauce is a great accompaniment to eggs. When I was growing up, my mom made our eggs with soy sauce all the time.

Whether it was scrambled, sunny side, or even raw (a very famous Japanese breakfast served over rice), it always had soy sauce in it!

In Japan, traditional scrambled eggs will almost always contain soy sauce which gives eggs more depth and flavor than typical salt, pepper, butter.

Japanese scrambled eggs topped with green onions served in a Japanese style bowl being picked with a pair of chopsticks.

The idea is to flavor the eggs so that you wouldn’t have to put sauces on it such as ketchup or Tabasco after cooking.

Now, I’m sure many of you have grown up eating your scrambled eggs with ketchup.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love an occasional scrambled egg smothered with ketchup!

      Hey Karen – glad you liked the Japanese scrambled egg recipe! You also can add a touch of sweetener to the eggs if you like, many places in Japan do that as well!
