Although South Korea isn’t the number one travel spot for travelers around the world, there are tons of reasons why you should include it in your list of must-see countries. Apart from its rich history and year-round festivals, Korea is also popular for its food, particularly street food.
In Korea, you’ll find tons of street food vendors selling street toasts.
It’s a salty-sweet egg sandwich that a lot of people have come to love, particularly tourists.
Fortunately, you don’t have to travel all the way to Korea just to taste it.
A video showing how to make delicious egg cheese toast has reached nearly 2 million views on YouTube. It shows how popular the food is!
The video shows a shop in Gyeonggi-do, Korea.
It has almost all types of Korean bread you can think of. The shop is owned by Patissier Gang Deok-soo. With over 30 years of experience in making bread, he certainly knows the ins and outs of making delicious egg cheese toasts.
Patissier Gang Deok-soo starts off by cracking 6 eggs into a bowl.
After that, he poured a whole box of whipped cream. To make sure the consistency was good, he gave the box a good shake before pouring everything into the bowl.
Next, he added mayonnaise.
After that, he whisked everything together, making sure that all the ingredients are well combined.
Then, he took out his packs of bread.
The process of making egg cheese toast probably brought back a lot of memories. Patissier Gang Deok-soo started sharing his experience.
“I have been making bread since I was in the 3rd grade of middle school. It’s probably been about 30 years.”
He unwrapped the bread and dipped each piece into the mixture.
After completely coating the pieces of bread, he placed them on a baking tray. He continued the step until his trays were full.
Patissier Gang Deok-soo created holes on the remaining pieces of bread.
Carefully, he placed ham slices on the coated pieces of bread. Of course, he can’t miss the cheese slices! Just like the ham, each piece of bread gets a slice, too.
To complete the set, he placed the bread slices with holes on them to cover the ones on the tray.
For the next part, Patissier Gang Deok-soo cracked several eggs in a different bowl.
With his gloved hand, he picked up the egg yolks and placed them into the holes he made on the bread earlier. Watching him do that feels like watching a puzzle getting solved. It’s so entertaining and satisfying!
He drizzled mayonnaise on the sandwiches before putting the trays inside the oven.
After a couple of minutes, the egg cheese toasts are done!
As a final touch, he added bits of parsley on top. The extra step made the toast look extra delicious.
The internet was quite entertained with the video.
One YouTube viewer reacted:
“When he added the eggs in the holes I thought it was the last step before baking… when he drizzled them with mayo… I had to stand and cheer! Perfection! 🏅”
Another one said:
“This was so relaxing to watch!”
The cheesy egg toasts are cheap and easy to make. It’s no wonder why they’re such a hit among tourists and even locals.
