World Breakfasts: Gaeran To Su Tu

For breakfast, Koreans ideally enjoy a sit down meal of rice, soup and kimchi; however, a lot of the time – like most of us – they have places to be and people to see. When negotiating the morning rush hour becomes a requirement, gaeran to su tu becomes a go-to hunger queller.

Gaeran to su tu is an egg sandwich (not as exotic as you thought, right?) consisting of an egg omelette and vegetables, and sometimes -- for Westernised iterations -- ham and cheese. Street vendors shift these sandwiches by the thousand every day -- they’re cheap, easy to make and perfect for devouring on the morning commute.

Have a go at making one yourself; it shouldn’t take any longer than 15 minutes.

What you’ll need (Serves 2):  

4 slices white bread

3 eggs

20g carrot, finely chopped

20g spring onion, finely chopped

30g cabbage, finely sliced

30g soft butter

Pinch salt and black pepper

1tbsp tomato ketchup

2tsp mayonnaise

1tbsp brown sugar

If you fancy sampling the ham and cheese version, add 2 slices of wafer thin ham and 2 square slices of cheese.

What you’ll need to do:

1. Put a frying pan over medium heat and melt about half the butter. Fry the bread on both sides until golden brown and set aside.

2. Beat the eggs in a bowl and pour in the carrot, spring onion, cabbage and salt and pepper. Mix briefly to combine the ingredients.

3. Melt the remaining butter in the frying pan and pour in the egg mixture. Gentle tilt and shake the pan so that the egg covers the entire base and fry on a low heat. Allow the egg to cook for about 2 minutes before flipping and cooking for a further 1 minute. Leave the egg to cool slightly and cut into two portions.

4. Mix together the ketchup and mayonnaise and spread it on each slice of fried bread (If you’re adding ham and cheese, lay the cheese on the bread first, followed by the ham and omelette). Place the egg on to the toast and sprinkle on the brown sugar. Top with the other slices of bread and tuck in!

If you’d like to warm your sandwich, pop it back into the frying pan for about 1 minute on low heat.
