Mille-Feuille Tamagoyaki (Rolled Omelette) - Video Recipe

This is a cute idea for Tamagoyaki (Japanese rolled omelette). I made it to look like Mille-feuille, also known as the Napoleon (pastry originating in France).

My darling doesn't like sweets but he loves bacon, so he was really happy with this idea :)

FYI: Tamagoyaki (dashimakitamago or atsuyakitamago) is a Japanese rolled omelet. It is often served for breakfast with white rice and miso soup. Also, it's one of the most popular dishes for bento (lunch box).
My mom makes sweet tamagoyaki, but some people make salty one. The flavor differs from house to house. In addition, to make it colorful, we sometimes add fillings in it.

Mille-Feuille Tamagoyaki (Rolled Omelette)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 6 pieces

Necessary Equipment:
18x13cm (7x5.1inch) tamagoyaki nabe (rectangular omelet pan)

2 bacon strips
2 sliced American cheese
2 eggs
1 grape tomato
cracked black pepper
olive oil

1. Beat eggs in a bowl, season with cracked black pepper, and mix well.
2. Cut bacon strips and sliced cheese into halves, and make pairs.
3. Heat olive oil in a tamagoyaki nabe (rectangular omelet pan) on low heat, pour 1/5 of egg mixture in the pan and spread over the surface. Cook it until half done and place bacon and cheese. Then roll the egg. Move the rolled egg to one side, pour another 1/5 of egg mixture in the space and under the rolled egg. Cook it until half done and place bacon and cheese. Roll the egg again. Repeat this until all your ingredients are gone.
4. Allow it to cool and cut it into 6 pieces. Also, cut the grape tomato into 6 wedges.
5. Garnish with mayonnaise (to look like whipped cream) and grape tomato wedges (to look like strawberries).


Many people asked me if my bacon is raw because it is pink. To answer that question, it is cooked already. Japanese bacon is sold cooked, so you can eat as is like ham ;)
