We celebrate the egg here at CliqueClack Food: Isabelle the Rookie Cook learned to make eggs over-easy, Bob discussed making Eggs Benedict, we wondered if eggs are just for breakfast, and Heidi Swanson treated us to a Tasty Frittata. It was only a matter of time before we glorified the egg sushi.
Better known as tamago (if you’re a real sushi eater, that is), the “omelet” that is used for the sushi is made from egg, sugar and shoyu. This is a great sushi to make at home for several reasons:

Sushi Day has really clear instructions, complete with pictures, on how to make tamago. Once you’ve completed your perfect little omelet, try it on one of these maki roll combinations:
You’ve got to serve these in the traditional way, as the flavors of the sweet egg, the sweet and spicy pickled ginger, the salty soy sauce and the nose-burning wasabi play off one another so nicely. This is one of my favorite sushi rolls to make at home.
