Omelette Balls (Takoyaki)

Omelette Balls (Takoyaki)
Omelette Balls (Takoyaki)

These little beauties are Omelette Balls, inspired by the Japanese street snack takoyaki. Piping hot balls of "eggy" batter filled with spring onions and pickled ginger, and topped with a tangy mix of teriyaki sauce and sriracha mayo, these are the perfect mix of crisp and gooey.

The secret to achieving this amazingly "eggy" filling is Crackd The No-Egg Egg, now available in the chilled meat substitute aisle in Tesco stores across the UK! With the equivalent of 6 eggs per bottle, you won't miss any of the golden colour or silky richness of regular eggs with this plant-based substitute.

It's also a wonderfully versatile ingredient, being pan, oven, microwave and even freezer-friendly! Why not use the leftover Crackd from this recipe to whip up some delicious flavoured Scrambled Eggs, Eggs Benedict Florentine, Chocolate Orange Brownies or Savoury Bread and Butter Pudding?
