Umami Hard Boiled Egg – The Delicious Daily 11.17.2009

With MSG listed as the fourth ingredient of a dozen in the nori komi furikake, this can only be called The Umami Egg.

It is my favorite way of eating hard boiled eggs — a splash of soy sauce, a squeeze of hot cock, and a sprinkle of nori komi furi-crack-e — but even with umami, I’m afraid I might be experiencing palate fatigue.

Inspire me? How do you eat your hard boiled eggs?

(Thank you, Chris de Cuisine, for coming up with the name.)

    I’m boring and eat them plain but thanks for the inspiration to jazz it up a bit!

    dijon mustard mixed with tiny bit of mayo, sprinkle the japanese seven spice- use as dip-sauce.

  • Mary Beth

    Bianca: i eat them plain, sometimes, but then i end up choking because i cook the eggs until the yolks are pretty hard so without anything, they’re dry. at the very least, a little salt makes my mouth water :)

    Fiona: what is Japanese Seven Spice?! although somehow you just reminded me that perhaps I should try a dollop of yuzu kosho

    Mary Beth: LOVE deviled eggs. but always hard to do when i’m only making/eating one (or two).

    Deviled w/Japanese 7 Spice and cayenne.

    A few nights ago, my husband made it with 7 Spice, cayenne and soy sauce. It wasn’t bad ;) but I don’t normally eat my eggs with soy sauce unless its in a soup.

  • Steph

    Crap.. sorry. Not deviled.. hard boiled ;) That’s what little sleep does to you..

  • http://www.thedeliciouslife.com Sarah J. Gim

    Steph: another one with the mention of Japanese 7-spice! I must find out what this is!

    OK! I’m back, and who knew that Japanese 7-spice is the English name for Shichimi Togarashi? I have a little jar of that in my cupboard now, so it’s looking like I have breakfast ready for tomorrow…

      For a variation on soy sauce, try Maggi Seasoning (the stuff in the bottle). When I worked in Switzerland, I used to buy hard boiled eggs at a alittl food store at the main train station in Zurich and at my desk, slice them in half with my handy Opinel knife and shake on the Maggi. But I also quite like them with soy sauce.

    I love ideas like this, thank you.

    Jean: You’re welcome! And that’s why I need ideas, because soy+sriracha was all I had and, well, I can only eat that combination … well quite a lot, actually. But I’d love to try something new!

    As a salad with mayo and asparagus – but I am loving how you eat yours!

  • http://www.thedeliciouslife.com Sarah J. Gim

    Trissa: when it comes spring, I shall make a salad with asparagus! Hm, tho (un)naturally, asparagus is available right now. I saw some the other day in the supermarket…I wonder where it’s from.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t seem to keep “hot cock” in my kitchen?  What might be another name for this ingredient?

    We eat ours with FACON from go lb. salt.  Tastes just like old school bacon – sweet, salty & smokey but with none of the fat, mess or clean-up!
