Omurice, or omg-rice, is a Japanese style omelette that is filled with fried rice. It is usually served with ketchup. The rice is usually cooked with pan-fried chicken. The rice is then enveloped in a thin layer of egg. Another variation of this dish is replacing rice with noodles to make “omusoba”. Aside from chicken, the rice is also partnered with Spam or hot dogs. This is a perfect breakfast meal that is great for leftover rice.
