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
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.
Cool and Peel: Remove the eggs from the heat and place them in cold water to cool. Once cooled, peel the eggs.
Mash the Eggs: Cut the eggs in half and scoop out the yolks. In a bowl, mash the yolks with a fork.
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.
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.
Refrigerate: Cover the bowl and refrigerate the egg mayo mixture for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
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.
