Gilgeori Toast (Korean Street Toast)

20 minutes

2 Servings


Yummy recipe shared by Jon Marks! Traditionally with carrots, cabbage and scallions. Jon substituted salad turnips for carrots since that's what they got in their farm share.


  • Butter both sides of bread, fry in pan until crispy brown, remove and set aside (To keep traditional, sprinkle 1 side of toast with sugar, we spread a hot pepper jelly instead)

  • Combine vegetables in a bowl, add a touch of salt and pepper, massage for 30 seconds to soften cabbage

  • Add egg to vegetables in bowl, mix thoroughly

  • Add butter or neutral oil to fry pan, when hot, add egg and veggie mix to pan.  Use 2 spatulas to keep shape and hold mixture into a patty that is same size as bread.  (We made 3 servings and cooked it all at once, cutting it into patties after it was cooked).  Cook for 2-3 minutes until lightly browned.

  • Flip patty and add sliced ham and cheese (if using) and cook for 2-3 minutes more until second side of patty is browned.

  • Put patty on toast and add any condiments (We used a sriracha mayo)

  • Enjoy!
