Flavored Snack Eggs

Flavored Snack Eggs

My family's flavored eggs go really well with rice and beer!!
Good for breakfast, obento or as an appetizer! Of course, they are also great in ramen!

Ingredients

Egg
4-5
Soy sauce
40 ml
Mirin
2 tablespoons
Tomato ketchup
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Soft boil the eggs and peel off the shells. The one shown in the photo was a fresh one, so the shell didn't come off very cleanly.
2. Put the flavouring ingredients in a small saucepan and let the mixture simmer before putting the eggs in it to soak. Let them soak overnight in the mixture in the fridge, turning them over occasionally.
3. They'll keep for 3-4 days in the fridge, but the yolk will be quite thick and at it's best around day 2.
4. If you use a ziplock bag when soaking the eggs, you won't need so much of each flavoring ingredient. There will be enough for 4-5 eggs.

Story Behind this Recipe

I make lots and keep them in the freezer. I eat them for breakfast or put them in my bento box for lunch. They also go really well with beer! Even if you don't have any other snacks, you will be satisfied with these. The key is in the boiling time!
