About this Recipe

By: Vincent

Sunday mornings hold a special place in our hearts. They’re a time to slow down, gather with loved ones, and savor the simple joys of life. And what better way to elevate your Sunday breakfast experience than with a dish that’s become a cherished tradition in our home – Japanese Egg Mayo.


6 large Eggs

4 tbsp Japanese Mayonnaise (e.g., Kewpie)

1 tsp Rice Vinegar

Pinch of Salt and White Pepper

Fresh Chives, finely chopped (for garnish)

Optional Crunchy Additions (Choose One or More):

  • Chopped celery
  • Finely diced cucumber
  • Pickled radishes
  • Crispy bacon bits
  • Toasted sesame seeds

Eggs have a special place in my heart, and it turns out my youngest boy feels the same way. He’s a devoted fan of this egg mayo, relishing it not only as a standalone treat but also as a delightful companion to plain rice. Since we typically keep a stash of hardboiled eggs in the fridge, whipping up this recipe takes just a few minutes! It’s a wonderfully simple recipe that I wholeheartedly encourage everyone to give a try.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Boil the Eggs: Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, let them cook for 12 minutes.

 Step 2

Cool and Peel: Remove the eggs from the heat and place them in cold water to cool. Once cooled, peel the eggs.

Step 3

Mash the Eggs: Cut the eggs in half and scoop out the yolks. In a bowl, mash the yolks with a fork.

Step 4

Add Mayonnaise and Seasonings: To the mashed yolks, add Japanese mayonnaise, rice vinegar, salt, and white pepper. Mix until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Step 5

Chop and Add Crunchy Elements: Choose from the optional crunchy additions listed above and finely chop or dice them. Fold these crunchy elements into the creamy egg mayo mixture.

Step 6

Refrigerate: Cover the bowl and refrigerate the egg mayo mixture for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Step 7

Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle with finely chopped chives for garnish. Serve your Japanese Egg Mayo as a delightful breakfast spread, a side dish, or a topping for crackers or toast.
