Samurai Egg Recipe


  • 10.5-inch non-stick skillet


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 slice of cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1 slice of Dave's Killer Bread, 21 Whole Grains & Seeds Thin-Sliced (optional)
  • KPOP Foods Korean Chili Sauce (optional, for garnish)
  • 1 chive (optional, chopped small for garnish)
  • 2 pinches of Shichimi Togarashi (optional for garnish)

  1. Separate the whites and yolks of 2 large eggs. Crack each egg and gently transfer the yolk back and forth between your hands, letting the white drop into a bowl. Place yolks in a separate container, then lightly salt the whites and beat until airy.
  2. Melt the butter in your skillet over medium-low heat. Pour in the egg whites. As they begin to set at the edges, gently push them towards the center, allowing uncooked white to flow outward. Continue until set yet slightly tender in the middle, about 6 minutes.
  3. Fold the white just once to create a pocket, place the yolk inside, and carefully fold over to encase it. Alternatively, for a more decorative approach, don't fold the whites before adding the yolk. Instead, place the yolk in the center, then fold the omelet in a sequence: top half over, left, right, and bottom sides.
  4. If you prefer a slightly warmed yolk, leave the egg in the off skillet for 30-60 seconds. Garnish with Shichimi Togarashi, Korean chili sauce, and chives for bursts of flavor and color.
  5. Optionally, place your Samurai Egg on a slice of toasted bread, topped with cheddar cheese, allowing the heat to melt the cheese slightly for a perfect blend of flavors.

Just a Tip:

Try cooking it with chili bone marrow compound butter and teriyaki pineapple sausage for a new take on the Samurai Egg.

The Samurai Egg is not just your typical omelet; it's a culinary journey that promises to tantalize your taste buds and awaken your senses. Every bite of this dish is an experience worth savoring!
