Korean Egg Bread (Gyeran Bbang)

I love eating this "egg bread" on the streets of Seoul. Usually, it is just made up of a pancake-like dough with egg. I have pimped out this version with some bacon, tomato and gooey cheese. I can see why it is such a popular street food, as it is so easy to eat on the go, yet still a completely gratifying breakfast.
