Gilgeori Toast – 길거리 토스트 (Korean Street Toast)

Gilgeori Toast or Korean Street Toast is a popular Korean street food that’s sweet, savory, and really delicious!! It’s an egg sandwich that’s jam packed with vegetables and a secret ingredient that really makes this a unique meal.

The secret ingredient is… sugar! Yes, a sprinkle of sugar is layered into the sandwich to give you this sweet and savory combo. It’s so simple, easy, and tasty – I guarantee your whole family will love this!

Like most Korean recipes, you can use any combination of vegetables you prefer. I had some extra perilla leaves in my fridge so I added them in. It’s not a traditional ingredient but I think it actually makes it better!
