My wife introduced me to this recipe about a year ago and I thought it was Russian recipe, then, I found out it was Japanese. Russia does have some strange dishes!! But I can say I enjoyed it, just like hash browns and eggs, as they say ”never judge a book by it’s cover.”
 
 
Ingredients
 
1 cup cooked white or brown rice
 
2 thin slices cooked ham, cubed
 
2 tablespoons ketchup
 
1 slice processed cheese food (optional)
 
2 eggs
 
salt and pepper to taste
 
1 tablespoon ketchup
 
1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions
 
Heat a skillet/frying pan over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray/oil.
 
Add the cooked rice, 2 tablespoons ketchup, ham, and cheese, if using.
 
Cook and stir until the ingredients are well combined/mixed and heated through, about 8 minutes. Scoop the mixture onto a serving bowl and shape into an oval.
 
In a bowl, beat eggs, add salt and pepper. Heat a small skillet /frying pan coated with cooking spray/oil over medium heat.
 
Add egg mixture and cook over medium heat. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. Use a spatula to gently fold the eggs into a cocoon shape. When eggs are completely set, remove from the heat.
 
Place the omelet on top of the rice and run a knife through the top layer of the omelet. It should open like a butterfly and drape/cover over the rice. Top with the final tablespoon of ketchup and a sprinkle of parsley.
 
What a lovely Japanese dish!
