How to make Korean street toast
Start with making the fried egg filling. I used about 2 eggs to make two sandwiches, and combined it with shredded veggies like cabbage, carrots and scallions (spring onions). Vegetables are a must in Korean cuisine, and this sandwich is not an exception. Again, you’ll need plenty of veggies, and eggs act as a binding factor in this recipe.
Now, heat a little butter or oil in a frying pan, and add the egg mixture. Spread the mixture into a rectangular shape and cook both sides. While the eggs are cooking, spread a few slices of bread with butter. This forms the base of this Korean street toast.
When the eggs come out of the pan, lightly toast the bread slices to give it a brown hue and crisp texture. Although white bread is used in the traditional recipe, I have opted for multigrain loaves to add some wholegrain goodness. Apart from the fried egg, you’ll also need a couple of slices of ham and cheese to create the classic toast. This Korean street toast is a true combination of sweet and savory flavors, so a touch of tomato sauce and a sprinkle of sugar are absolutely necessary.
Now, assemble the sandwich, and enjoy the true flavors of Korean street food.
Sweet, savory, and packed with veggies. Do you need a better excuse to indulge in this easy and nutritious street toast?
