I serve it thick in a small pan. The edges are still sizzling and I scoop it with a spoon. The cooked onion gives natural sweetness and the egg gives savory taste. The onion is soft but still a bit crunchy which makes the texture interesting.
Fried onion and egg is one of the most common dishes I have had since I was a kid. I was barely picky but somehow I didn't like it. Everyone else seemed to enjoy it, so I just thought to myself, "Why does mom never cook eggroll?" My dad and grandmother enjoyed it, but always said, "Why didn't you put more onion?" And I hated hearing it every time. The sweet taste from onion was a bit weird, too.
Has my taste changed, or am I missing the childhood? Now it's on my table quite frequently. I cook it a lot because it's easy to cook and the nutrition is well balanced. Chopping onions more than I initially thought I'd chop, I become my mom in those days for a second. "Why didn't you put more onions?" These words will always be followed when cooking this dish.
