In Taiwan, as everyone rushes off to work in the morning, people generally grab dan bing, a traditional Taiwanese breakfast sold by street vendors. You might be wondering, what is dan bing? It’s basically a crepe filled with egg as a base, and can be loaded with other ingredients like meat and cheese. It doesn’t take long to make at home, and once you start, you’ll be totally hooked. The crepe batter itself comes together with three ingredients: flour, cornstarch, and water. Add some chopped scallions to the beaten eggs and a dash of sesame oil for a punch of flavor. Cook the crepes, swirling the pan to coat the bottom, for about three to four minutes. Spread the egg mixture on the warm crepe while it’s still in the pan and cook until the egg is just about set, then flip onto the other side for a couple more seconds. Roll into a long, rectangular roll, and slice. Serve and drizzle with a soy sauce, rice vinegar, and chili oil sauce.
