Pork Floss Breakfast Sandwich – Quick and Easy
February 11, 2023  Print
This quick and easy breakfast sandwich uses pork floss and can be made in under 10 minutes. I got the idea from an Asian bakery, which sells pork floss paired with their baked breads.
This pork floss breakfast sandwich (肉松早餐面包) uses only four ingredients: pork floss, eggs, mayo, and bread. That’s how simple it is!
I often make it as a breakfast sandwich when I’m pressed for time. I also pack it as part of my kids’ lunch. If you’re like me and you pack your kids’ lunchbox every day, you need a variety of options to keep the lunches from getting stale and repetitive. This quick breakfast sandwich is perfect for that! It’s a great option with an Asian twist if your kids need a break from deli meat and cheese type sandwiches.
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 3 slices bread (any kind is fine)
- 1/4 cup pork floss or pork sung 肉松 1
- 1 large egg, beaten
- ~2 tablespoons mayo 2
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Toast the 3 bread slices slightly in a toaster oven.
- Heat a well-seasoned cast iron pan or nonstick skillet under medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, swirling the oil around for a bit. When the oil is warm, pour the beaten egg into the pan, spreading it a bit with a spatula to form a thin layer. When the egg solidifies, use a spatula to transfer it out to a plate. Cut it into two pieces.
- Spread a thin layer of mayo with a bread knife onto one slice of bread. Then spread some pork floss on top of the mayo, gently flattening the pork floss with the bread knife. Arrange one piece of the cooked egg sheet on top of the pork sung.
- Spread another thin layer of mayo on to a second slice of bread. Put the second slice of bread on top of the egg sheet with the mayo side down. Then spread more mayo on the top side of the bread slice. Add the remaining pork sung and egg sheet as in step 3. Add mayo to the last slice of bread and place it face down on the egg. Cut the sandwich into two pieces and enjoy!
- Pork floss is also known as pork sung, meat floss, and shredded dried pork. You can find many kinds in Asian grocery stores with different names like 肉酥，肉铺，or 肉绒. They are all under the umbrella term rou song 肉松. The different kinds of pork floss are all very similar in terms of taste and made with dried shredded pork and sweet and savory seasoning. One might be slightly more shredded, sweeter, saltier, and/or drier.
- I like using Japanese mayo (Kewpie brand) for my pork sung sandwich. You can either buy it from store or make your own.
