Today the dish I want to show you is 蛋餅(Dan-Bing)，a common dish found at breakfast shops (早餐店)。It's a Taiwanese omelette, with eggs and an assortment of ingredients wrapped inside crepe-like pastry. We are not master chefs by any means, but I hope this could give you a idea of what it looks like and maybe be interested in making your own version!
蛋餅皮 Crepe Simple Orientale (this sounds fancy!)
蔥 Green Onions
起司 A piece of cheese, or anything you like, e.g. sweetcorn, ham,bacon, tuna, spam......
油 Cooking Oil
鹽 Salt (if your filling isn't salted like the cheese we used)
平底鍋 frying pan
1. Cut up green onions. I used up the whole thing shown in the first photo, which is ALOT. You can just use a pinch of them to add flavour, or you'll be left with the smell in your mouth for hours. Be warned!
2. Beat eggs casually. You can use one egg or be generous and use two.
3. Put the chopped green onion into the egg goo.
1.Turn on heat, dribble a bit of oil into the frying pan.
2. Swish the pan around to distribute the oil evenly.
3. Pour the egg+green onion mixture into the pan. Shapes don't matter.
4. Peel a piece of crepe off the plastic wrap. The shiny plastic may look oddly tempting, but it's not edible!
9. Don't know what this levitating trick is, but you don't have to do it.
10. Plate and serve!
With as few as 3 ingredients and 10 steps, you can make this at home. It may not look like much, (it looks completely different from the store-bought variety haha) but it really tastes good!
It's very versatile, it can be as simple as eggs+green onion+crepe, or you can make it super lux with eggs+green onion+crepe+corn+cheese+bacon+tuna.......the combinations are endless! The cheese we used was salty, so we didn't add any other condiments. If your choice of fillings aren't salted, you may want to add some salt or have it with soysauce paste, which is how most people eat it!
