If you happen to have an egg slicer, you can slice the eggs, then mash them. Starting with sliced eggs makes the process easier and quicker.
you need help with your cayenne problem
Grew up in the UK and made this all the time. Not sure it's Japanese!
you can chop the eggs up with a biscuit cutter
Ooooh, I never realized that the truly, truly chilled egg salad on slightly dry, cold bread really makes the difference between a homemade versus premade sandwich!
Jaque Pepin has the best egg boiling technique.
I feel like a watch Chef John for stuff a little above convenience store food. Sorry, but this gets a thumbs down for me.
As a resident of Japan, this is the sandwich I sometimes get at a convenience store when I'm hungry and need a quick meal. It's nothing special to write home about. I believe Japanese mayonnaise is disguising (>_<), oily, and bland. However, there are people in Japan who love mayonnaise. In Japan, someone who loves mayonnaise (like an addiction) is called "mayora" (マヨラー pronounced "Mah-Yo-Lah"). It's a Japanese word contraction that means "Mayo Love". They will put it on nearly everything: rice, pizza, vegetables, curry, etc. ;p Search the internet for images using the text マヨラー, and you will see what I mean. Warning: some images may be disturbing.
Chef John, many folks like egg white omelets, I'm not one of them, but you could add 2 whole eggs to 2 or 3 egg whites only & make a decent omelet or so they say
I always take out the yolks and mash them into a fine powder to mix with mayo and Italian seasoning. Then fine dice the whites separately combine.
The Japanese mayo recipe is nearly identical to KFC coleslaw dressing. (Just add some pepper and celery seed)
Thank you especially for the homemade version of Kewpie mayo! I just learned about it about a week ago and this gives me a way to preview the flavor before committing to a whole container. 😀
Sooooo… I live in Newfoundland canada, and aside from the rice wine vinegar this is EXACTALY how we do ours. We add dill pickle juice instead of vinegar. So now I'm wondering how you guys usually make them in the States?
Chief John I truly love you, as the dad I never had. Thank you for always making me happy when I'm sad 😊
The Bob Ross of cooking
oh my god. the metal grate in the sink is so sparkley clean. how can I get my grates that clean?!
Note the bread with no nutritional value
No onion? 😱
I love how chef John always finds a way to flex how fresh his eggs are lol
Easiest way to get the shell off in one peel: put eggs in boiling water. When eggs are hard boiled, tap them with a metal spoon to get cracks all over. When cooled down in cold water, it will come off in one peel!
Use a box grater for your eggs, done and grated fine in seconds
I was just making eggs for breakfast and this came up
It's pronounced Tah-Mah-go lol 😉
