Once again, Korean TV has ruined my regular food for me. Why does everything look so tasty? How?
So my current obsession is the show “Take good care of the refrigerator” (“Chef and my Fridge” on Netflix, “냉장고를 부탁해” in Korean) from JTBC. They make the most interesting food in 15 minutes!
The show is a mix between a cooking show, a talk show, and a competition. It’s amazing. It’s so over the top but in the best possible way!
Every week they bring in 2 celebrities (sometimes 4 if they’re group members) and those celebrities fridges. Then, they have to cook 4 meals with whatever is in the fridge.
It’s hilarious, you should give it a try!
Anywho, this show inspired many a meal from me, including this one.
Technically, Korean Egg Toast, or 길거리 토스트, is more in the realm of street food than home cooking. It was still delicious. Kinda reminds me of a “western sandwich” that you can sometimes find in breakfast restaurants.
Alright, let’s get to it!
Korean Egg Toast
– 4 eggs, large
– 2 green onion
– 1/2 carrot
– 1/2 mini bok choy
– 2 slices of cheddar cheese
– 4 slices of white bread
– Japanese mayonnaise
– Salt and Pepper
1. Chop the carrot, green onion, and cabbage extremely fine. I julienned mine than diced it to make a “brunoise”.
2. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the veggies.
3. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you’d like, you can also add sugar at this step. Personally, I find that the ketchup brings enough sweetness, but eh, you do you!
4. Butter up a pan and on LOW HEAT cook your veggie omelet. Flip when half done. Reserve.
5. Butter your bread and toast in the pan (or put it in the toaster if you are as lazy as I am)
5. Assemble the sandwich by layering the omelet, ham, and cheese on top on your first slice of bread.
6. Add a generous amount of Japanese mayo and Ketchup. Cover with the second slice of bread.
7. Eat all the sandwiches!
You can, of course, add or remove whatever ingredients. Or use whatever bread you want. Or use regular mayo.
Ultimately, it’s your sandwich and I’m not the boss of you! That being said, this seems to be the classic combination of ingredients for Korean Egg toast!
Now go forth and eat! And binge-watch “Chef and my Fridge” on Netflix!
Side note: Are we liking Sunday posting instead of Wednesday or no? It seemed to be a better time to post so I figured I’d try! Let me know what you think!
Until next week,
