Egg Pinwheels (계란 말이)

계란 말이, gae-ran ma-ree, is a Korean side dish made from egg. It's like a rolled up omelet that is cut into pinwheels. It's kind of like the lazy mom banchan (side dish) because it's so quick and easy but it's a good kid-friendly source of protein.

Ingredients:
2 eggs
1/4 cup cream (or milk or half-and-half)
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon vegetable oil (or more for cooking)
Start by mixing all of the ingredients together. I love the second frame in the photo below because it looks like a smiley face!

You want to whip the ingredients enough to make some bubbles but it shouldn't look foamy.
Heat up a nonstick skillet (pick a pan that's between 9" to 12") with some vegetable oil. Pour in about half of the egg mixture and swirl the pan around (as if you were making a crepe) to evenly distribute the ingredients. Once the edges look firm but the center is still runny, scrape up one side with a spatula and start to roll the omelet up.
Once it's rolled up, crank the heat and let the egg start to get a bit of color - about two minutes on each side. Lower the heat and then repeat with the remaining egg mixture.
Plate the rolled up omelets and cut into pinwheels.
Serve warm or room temperature with soy sauce for dipping (optional).
