Baked Creamy Egg Hayashi Rice Using Leftover Hayashi Sauce

Baked Creamy Egg Hayashi Rice Using Leftover Hayashi Sauce

With a little effort you can enjoy leftover Hayashi rice sauce a second time. The creamy egg and melted cheese are so delicious! Enjoy it when it's still hot.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Leftover Hayashi sauce (you can also use readymade sauce)
3 ladles worth
Hot cooked rice
2 rice bowls worth (300 g)
Cheese for melting
desired amount
to taste


1. Warm leftover Hayashi sauce and mix with warm rice. Put in a heat-proof container greased with butter and make a dent in the middle.
2. Put cheese around the dent and break the egg into the dent. Bake in a toaster oven. When cheese is browned it's ready to serve.
3. It's difficult to tell from the photograph, but the soft cooked egg is very creamy. I personally recommend using a lot of mozzarella cheese.

Story Behind this Recipe

I copied the famous baked curry from Mojikou in Fukoka prefecture. I happened to have leftover Hayashi rice and my husband was out for drinks that night, so I came up with this recipe to have an easy dinner with my daughter.
