Korean street toast
This is a super cool take on the classic breakfast sandwich. Recipes for Korean street toast vary slightly, but they typically involve two slices of buttered and pan-fried bread, and stirring your eggs with raw vegetables before you cook them. Common vegetables used are cabbage, carrot, and scallions. Then you cook your vegetable and egg mixture kind of like a pancake, making it as square as possible because it’s going to go between your slices of bread. Once the cooked egg and vegetable mixture is on a slice of bread, it’s frequently topped with some sugar and ketchup. Sometimes cheese!
