Eggy Rice Balls (Jumeok-bap)
Korean style rice balls with scrambled eggs
- 3 Nellie’s Free Range Eggs
- 15 oz cooked medium-grain white rice
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
- 1 cup minced carrot about 1 medium-size carrot
- 2/3 cup frozen corn
- 1 package of seaweed snacks cut into strips
- Cooking oil spray
In a bowl, crack eggs. Add 1/2 tsp of salt and beat the eggs.
Spray a nonstick pan with cooking oil. Scramble eggs over medium heat, and set aside.
Spray the now-empty pan with cooking oil. Cook carrot until it is soft to touch.
Microwave frozen corn per package direction and coarsely chop corn. Chopping will help the rice balls stick together.
In a large bowl, add hot cooked rice. Add 1 tsp salt, toasted sesame seeds, and toasted sesame oil. Gently mix to combine.
Add carrot, corn, scrambled eggs, and seaweed. Gently mix.
Wash your hands, and with your wet hands, form the mixture into balls.
Pack them in a lunchbox with an ice pack or serve them immediately in a bowl. Rice balls are best when eaten on the same day. Refrigerating can dry out the texture.
