  • Once the potatoes are boiled, you can choose to peel off the skin or not. Then, mash the potatoes using your desired tool. I used a rice paddle ◡̈ To flavor, add 1.5 tablespoon kewpie mayo and 1 tablespoon heavy cream. Melt 1/2 tablespoon butter and add in the potatoes. Then, add salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to add a little bit and taste as you go! Mix together until potatoes are smooth.

  • Add 2-3 tablespoons of potatoes in a ramekin. Crack one egg and add on top of the potatoes.

  • Heat a large pot of water and add a steaming rack. Once the water is boiling, carefully add the 3 ramekins. Add a cheese cloth or a hand towel at the top of the pot and cover. This prevents water getting into the eggs. Steam for 5-6 minutes for overeasy eggs. Steam for 8 minutes for half boiled and 10 minutes for well-done eggs.
  • After steaming, add as much as you like for your favorite toppings: togarashi, chives, katsuobushi, seaweed and flakey salt (optional).
