Gaeran Bbang is a type of street food in Korea. Gaeran means egg and Bbang is bread, so this is egg bread korean style. I found some photos from the internet to show you how the real gaeran bbang looks like.

As you can see, they have a special kind of equipment to make this with oval shape moulds and looks like the bread gets cooked from some heatsource at the bottom of the pan. I remember seeing something like this in Jeannie's blog, so i went to check again. Yes, it is the same thing and Jeannie uses a muffin pan and oven to make these..i followed.
These egg breads are like little cakes or muffins with a boiled egg at the top..Have anyone of you eaten the real gaeran bbang ? I do find it quite interesting, remember to eat it while it's still hot, sprinkle more salt and pepper onto the egg to make it more tasty. You can also put in ham or salami like Jeannie did.
