Korean Egg Bread (계란빵)

May 6, 2019

Hi, this is Dave. This summer Dorothy is off in Montana having a grand culinary adventure. She’ll be posting about that at some point, but until then, I thought I might share some of the cooking I’ve been doing at home.

For the last several weeks YouTube has been tormenting me by recommending videos of Korean street food, notably egg bread or gyeran bbang (계란빵). It looked easy enough, so this past weekend I thought I’d try making it at home. I dug up a recipe and, well…

.I think it turned out pretty well! Some quick notes:

In the end, was it a huge taste sensation? No, not really. It kind of tasted like a bacon and egg biscuit from McDonald’s, and don’t get me wrong, those are great but they’re not exactly exciting.

You could probably improve the flavor by seasoning the egg, or by using spicy cheese. Or maybe by brushing some gochujang on the bacon real quick before you take it off the grill.

Well, guess I know what I’m making for breakfast next weekend…
