Fluffy scrambled eggs with a twist! Using mirin adds a delicious umami flavor and less salt is required. Add to rice or serve with bacon and toast.

Recipe Card


  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided


  • Step 1

    Break eggs into a bowl and beat well. Add in salt, mirin, and cream. Beat until combined.

  • Step 2

    Melt half of the butter in a non-stick saucepan over low heat and swirl the pan around. Pour in the beaten eggs and stir constantly until creamy.

  • Step 3

    Now add in the remaining butter and remove from heat. Keep stirring as the eggs will continue to cook with the heat from the pan. It should fluff up a bit but still creamy.

  • Step 4

    Grind black pepper on top and serve immediately.
