Sweet and savory, this Korean street food is a great snack to keep you warm on cold days! With a taste similar to cornbread but without the corn, it’s easy to customize and make it your own!
I’ve been looking for some good egg recipes lately, and when I came across this dish, I knew I had to try it. Eggs and bread, served like a muffin? What’s not to love! This bread, called gyeran bbang, is a popular food in the winter, though it’s so good, I’d eat it all year round!
Now, I don’t know a lot about Korean food, but not for lack of desire! It’s always so hard to get into a new cuisine, different ingredients, different techniques, it starts to get overwhelming. But, I thought this dish seemed easy enough for anyone to make, so I hope you’ll enjoy them too!
This recipe is easy to customize with your favorite toppings. They’re great just as is, but if you want to add a little cheese, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, mayonnaise, etc, go for it! Best served just out of the oven, they’re still quite delicious a day or so later. And, if you want to make a bunch and freeze for later, they work quite well! It’s a great way to bake a bunch and enjoy throughout the week!
