Let’s now take a look at how to make this triple taste delight of egg, bacon and gooey cheese with an added dollop of ketchup.
Step by Step Guide to Making Korean Toast
For this sandwich I have used streaky bacon. Fry on a medium heat 1 or 2 slices of the bacon in a medium sized non-stick pan.
Place the bacon to one side. You can leave the bacon fat in the pan if you like for added flavour and place a small amount of butter into the pan.
While the butter is melting, break 2 eggs into a small dish and add a pinch of salt to taste. You can separate the eggs with a fork a little if you wish.
With the butter gently melted over a low heat add the egg ingredients to the pan. Let the egg combine a little, then add the 2 slices of bread in the centre of the egg base.
Turn both slices of bread over so they have an egg coating on the underside. Leave for a moment until the egg is cooked through then turn the egg / bread omelette over using a spatula.
With the egg and bread now combined together, carefully fold over the corners of the outer egg layer onto the bread.
Add the cheese slices and bacon to each side of the bread and then squirt as much ketchup as you like on top.
Now turn over the non-layered slice of bread to complete the sandwich.
