Rice Paper Eggs: A Gem Among TikTok Recipes
Table of Contents
There’s no denying the abundance of terrible recipes flooding our social media feeds, including TikTok. However, amidst the chaos, true culinary gems occasionally emerge. In my Biting Reviews series, I’ve had the pleasure of uncovering one such gem: Rice Paper Eggs.
These eggs have become a staple in my kitchen, a recipe I now make weekly for a quick and satisfying breakfast or lunch. Unlike many online recipes, Rice Paper Eggs are not only fast and affordable but also bursting with flavor.
What Are Rice Paper Wrappers?
Sold in most grocery stores nowadays, rice paper wrappers, also known as spring roll wrappers, are incredibly thin sheets made from rice flour. Traditionally used for rolling up fillings in dishes like chicken spring rolls, these delicate wrappers can be a bit tricky to handle when soaked.
However, for this recipe, you can skip the soaking step altogether. Instead, toss a dried wrapper into a skillet, and like magic, it works perfectly.
How to Make Rice Paper Eggs
Don’t be intimidated by the unfamiliar ingredients; this recipe is actually quite simple. If you can scramble eggs, you can make this dish.
Start by placing a dry rice paper wrapper in a large skillet and adding a spoonful of chili crisp or chili oil. Personally, I recommend chili crisp for its crunchy peanuts and bold chili flakes if you can find it.
The addition of oil prevents the rice paper from rolling up during cooking.
Next, crack an egg onto the rice paper wrapper, breaking the yolk and spreading it evenly. The egg will cook through, thanks to the heat-resistant nature of the wrapper.
Don’t hesitate to add your preferred toppings just as the egg is nearly set. I like to include fresh tomatoes and chives, but you can get creative. The original TikTok version suggested sriracha and mayo as fillings, but I prefer drizzling them on top.
Cook for another minute or two until the eggs are fully set, then fold the wrapper in half, creating a half-circle shape. Transfer it to a cutting board, chop it into thirds, and drizzle with sriracha mayo. Serve immediately!
Filling Ideas for Your Eggs
When it comes to fillings for these rice paper eggs, less is more. Keep the fillings thin but feel free to get creative. I often use leftover bits and pieces from previous meals. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Chopped meat like ham, bacon, or cooked spiced ground beef.
- Sauteed vegetables such as mushrooms or zucchini.
- Fresh herbs like cilantro, chives, scallions, or parsley.
- Pickled jalapenos for an extra kick.
- Harder cheeses like parmesan would complement the flavors wonderfully.
Remember, the key is to maintain a light touch with the fillings.
