Onigiri (Rice Ball) with Fried Egg

Onigiri (Rice Ball) with Fried Egg

I stuffed a fried egg in the rice ball and it turned out well!
This is now my family's favourite ingredient for rice balls.

Ingredients: 1 rice ball

Plain cooked rice
1 bowlful
Toasted nori seaweed
1 piece
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Vegetable oil
1 teaspoon
a small amount
Mayonnaise (optional)
to taste


1. Heat oil in a pan over low heat and crack a egg into it. When the egg white is cooked, break the egg yolk with a spatula and fold into half.
2. Pour soy sauce into the pan as you divide the fried egg into 4 pieces and turn off the heat.
3. It should look like this once you've cooked the egg.
4. Sprinkle salt on plastic wrap and portion half of the rice on the plastic wrap. Place the fried egg on top and squeeze some mayonnaise on it if you like. Cover with the other portion of rice. Shape into a rice ball. Remove the plastic and wrap with toasted nori.

Story Behind this Recipe

I make onigiri every day for my husband to take to work for breakfast.
I was just thinking of ways of varying the onigiri so that he doesn't get too bored.
