Omelette Rice (Omurice)

Japanese cafe staple: the omelette rice. There's nothing fancy about it really, but it tastes good and it's pretty fun, since you can draw on it with ketchup!

(source) This one says annoyed!
Let's make some! I used this video from Cooking with Dog.  Doubled the recipe though (so I'd have extras later) and switched button mushrooms to random Asian mushrooms the lady at Ranch 99 convinced Sak to buy. @_@  I also forgot to add the boullion cube, but it had enough flavor without it, so..yay for low-sodium? Haha.

I used:

4 eggs
milk for scrambling eggs
salt/pepper to taste

2 cups rice
1 can diced tomato
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp white wine
couple handfuls of frozen peas
one bunch of mushrooms
2 chicken thighs, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
1 tbsp chopped garlic

First, stir fry onions and garlic.  Add chicken, then mushrooms and wine.
Then add canned tomato, peas, and ketchup.
Cook til it's not super-liquidy, then add to rice.

To make the omelette, mix eggs and milk, then make a crepe in your pan.  Put some rice in the middle.
Then fold the sides of the omelette over (it won't go all the way like a burrito), and roll it out of the pan onto a plate.

Garnish with ketchup!

My ketchup-art needs some work. But it's cute! And filling.

Now if I could only make them as cute as this one:
Ahhhh so cute! How could you even eat little rilakkuma!


  1. This looks really good! Perfect for breakfast or dinner :)

  2. I'm so hungry... The filling looks delicious! The bear is SO cute!!!

  3. How is it possible that everything you do is so cute? I'm going to make these for ST! :-)

  4. Looks yummy! I'd be very interested to try making this, since our neighbor just gave us trays of chicken eggs, so bring on the omelettes. :-D

  5. yummy! looks like a perfect little meal.
