  • 1 tbsp white vinegar to make peeling easier
  • ½ tsp salt to prevent egg leakage (if cracked) while boiling


  • Bring pot of water to boil. Optionally but recommended, add salt and vinegar to prevent egg leakage from possible cracked eggs and vinegar to make peeling easier.
  • Boil your eggs for 13 minutes covered (not shown in video). Once boiled, transfer to an ice bathe. Crack and peel them.
  • Carefully run a sharp knife around the yolk to gently separate egg yolks from the whites. Transfer whites into another bowl.
  • Run yolks through a fine sieve set over a mixing bowl. Use the back of a spatula or spoon to push the egg through the sieve until your egg yolks are finely grated. Make sure to scrape the back of the sieve for more egg yolk.
  • Finely dice egg whites.
  • Combine egg yolks and whites. Season with salt, black pepper, sugar and Japanese mayo.
  • Mix with a spatula until creamy.
  • Cut your brioche buns into half about 90% of the way. Spoon your egg salad into the bun. Garnish with dried parsley.
