Today I’m sharing one of Korean street food recipe with you guys!
While I’m in Korea, I ate so much Korean street food because street food is part of Korean culture.. it’s everywhere!
One of my favorite Korean street food is Gilgeori-Toast. Means Street toast.
My first time eating street toast is when I was in high school. It was kind of new thing during that time.
Korean street toast sells mostly as breakfast, it is Korean style of Grab-and-Go type of breakfast.
The signature of Korean street toast and what makes it different than any other egg sandwich out there is amount of veggies and the sweet flavor.
Korea, we love vegetables in our meals. We’ve got to have vegetables in every single meals.
Egg sandwich is not an exceptional. So there is a lot of veggies in it.
Also this Korean street toast is not only savory, but balanced beautifully with sweet flavor.
Classic way is just sprinkle some sugar, even though now days a lot of this street toast chain restaurants use their own special sweet sauces.
I’m sharing the classic version since it will be the most easiest recipe.
Hope you guys enjoy and try this Korean street toast one day as your breakfast!

Followed your recipe for breakfast this morning. So easy and delicious!! Mixed gochujang with the ketchup – I like the heat!
Ummm that’s great idea, gochujang and ketchup!
I had this late night for dinner. My brother and I loved it. The flavor was amazing!
WOOTWOOT~! So happy to hear that Alexis!!
Can you tell me what type of mayo you are using? I know Koreans mayonnaise is a bit different (sweeter) than the American type. Thanks!!!
I use Japanese Kewpie Mayonnaise, you can find at your local Asian grocery store or online! http://amzn.to/1poZf4d
I was doubtful about the sugar, but it brought out the flavor of the vegetables. I also used sriracha. I’m going to be making this regularly.
hahahah welcome to the Korean Street Toast Club!! So glad you gave a shot for the sugar and liked it!!
That’s like the best sandwich ever! I subbed some stuff for stuff I had, like for the veggies i used carrots and celery and for meat i used bologna and cooked that on the pan, and i didn’t use ketchup, i’m not a fan of it, but maybe next time i will try that out too!~
Thank you so much for this! I’d been dithering over trying to make gaeran tostu, but took the plunge with your recipe this morning. I had no ham around, so skipped that and the cheese, but the next time, I’ll make sure i add those as well. This was so good! Thank you, again.
You guys, this sandwich is EVERYTHING!!! I was skeptical about the sugar, but no, this is my new go-to breakfast food!! Absolutely delicious!!!!!
I added mushroom and sautéed it on its own first before mixing with Veges and egg. It was absolutely delicious. 😋😋😍
Sounds and looks delish.😊
I don’t have American cheese so can I use another type os cheese to make it? I don’t know which cheese could be tasty to alternate in this toast. I need your help.
I don’t have American cheese so which cheese can I use to make it?
I tried your Korean toast recipe and my husband and I loved it. So many vegetables and so filling. Need to eat more vegetable and this will be my go to breakfast. Yummy.
Sooooo glad to hear!
I made this today with bacon and it was fantastic! I think next time I might experiment with an okonomiyaki-inspired version and swap the ketchup for okonomi sauce!
OUUUUUU That would be a great twist to this recipe! Make sure to take a picture and post it on your instagram story so I can re-share!
Wow, nice one👌. Thank you
I like the frying tool you use, for making the street sandwich Toast, where can I order the same thing?
Mixed the Mayo with liquid Tajin and Louisiana Hot sauce and used bacon instead of ham. My wife and I loved it, made 6 more for the work week.
It was very good! Thank you for the recipe! I was skeptical about the ketchup, but I just did what you said and it was very delicious! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!
Already made it 7x in the last 2 weeks with my family! It’s so nice and easy! I personally just eat it with the sugar and no sauces, and it still is wonderful to eat. I did reduce the egg count and add more cabbage however, and instead of using 1 patty per sandwich, we use 2. So I follow this recipe for 2 people but use both patties for 1 sandwich, it really fills up amazingly that way and helps me reduce my bread intake! I also increase the cabbage by atleast 1/3rd of the amount of 1/2 the amount, and use less eggs. For 4 patties we only use 3 eggs, and for 2 patties we use 1 🙂 They still stay together very well and don’t fall apart at all, something that did happen with other recipes often cause of too much cabbage. Very filling and nice for a quick and (decently fast) breakfast/lunch~
