Back to Activities

You’ll need

  • Plates
  • Knives
  • Chopping boards
  • Bowls
  • Pans
  • Stoves and fuel
  • Spatula
  • Ingredients (see below)

Before you begin

  • Use the safety checklist to help you plan and risk assess your activity. Additional help to carry out your risk assessment, including examples can be found here. Don’t forget to make sure all young people and adults involved in the activity know how to take part safely.
  • Make sure you’ll have enough adult helpers. You may need some parents and carers to help if you’re short on helpers.

시작하기 전에 (Before start)

  • Remember to check for allergies, eating problems or dietary requirements and adjust the recipe as needed. Make sure you've checked everyone's dietary requirements and allergies then adapted the recipe as appropriate. This may include ensuring no cross-contamination during food storage, preparation and serving, too. 
  • Check if there are any items of food (or packaging) that people can’t touch or be near to or if there are items that people might not be comfortable using in the activity. 
  • Be conscious about who may be fasting when providing snacks, eating and drinking – you may want to plan this activity for when everyone can get involved or leave out the eating and drinking part.
  • Make sure you have suitable areas for storing and preparing food, and avoid the cross contamination of different, or raw and cooked, foods.
  • Set up a separate sink for hand washing, if you can.
  • This recipe is vegetarian, but vegan options can be accommodated easily by simply replacing the animal products with a vegan alternative.
  • This recipe can also be made to be gluten free by replacing the bread with a gluten free alternative.
  • All ingredients should be available in most large supermarkets.


  • 1 teaspoon of oil
  • Half a carrot
  • One spring onion
  • A quarter of a cabbage
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of white bread (Milk bread or similar works best for flavour)
  • A teaspoon of butter or margarine/spread
  • One cheese square, such as burger cheese or similar
  • Sugar, ketchup and/or mayonnaise for seasoning after the ‘Toast’ has been cooked

Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 15 mins

Serves:  4-6 people

조리 공간 준비 (Preparing the cooking area)

  1. Everyone should start by washing their hands. Remember to remind the group that they should be washing their hands thoroughly throughout this activity, as well as before handling any food, taking part in any cooking task and eating.
  2. Gather everyone together and tell everyone you’re going to make some Korean style toast.
  3. Ask everyone to get into groups of between four and six people
  4. Groups should get their food preparation areas set up. Each group needs a bowl, a chopping board and knife and some ingredients.

음식 준비 (Food preparation)

  1. Take time to teach everyone how to use sharp objects safely and supervise them appropriately throughout. Remember to store all sharp objects securely, out of the reach of young people.
  2. Using a chopping board and knife, the group should finely chop all the vegetables. Keep them either on the chopping board or on a plate/in a bowl to one side.
  3. Another member of the group can crack the eggs into the bowl and whisk them with a fork. They should wash their hands and the fork after handling the raw egg.
  4. The group now need to add all the vegetables into the whisked egg and mix it together.
  5. Afterwards, the group should butter each piece of bread on both sides.

요리 시작 (Start the cooking)

  1. An adult should help set up your hob or stove and pans ready for cooking. This’s where an adult leading the activity could teach young people how to use cooking equipment safely and supervise them appropriately throughout.
  2. Make sure anyone using the stoves is doing so safely. Check that the equipment and cooking area are suitable with plenty of ventilation. Follow the gas safety guidance and have a safe way to extinguish a fire in an emergency.
  3. Preheat a frying pan or grill on a high heat with the teaspoon of oil.
  4. On a medium heat, fry both pieces of bread on both sides and then add to a plate on the side.
  5. Next, add the egg and vegetable mixture to the pan. Fry the mixture until the egg is solid and like an omelette consistency.
  6. An adult should help to remove it from the hob once cooked. Remember, the food and pan will be hot. Remember to put the pan on a heatproof surface and remind young people to not touch it, as it’ll be hot. You could move the mixture onto a cold plate or bowl for the group to access it safely.

즐겨 (Enjoy It)

  1. Once the mixture has cooled slightly, the group should build their sandwich. The sandwich will be divided up into four to six pieces, depending on the numbers in the group, so everyone can try a bit of it.
  2. The group should put the omelette-like mixture on top of one piece of bread, then add a piece of cheese on top.
  3. They should then put the second piece of bread on top of the cheese to make the sandwich.
  4. Cut the sandwich into as many portions, so that everyone that wants to try it has some.
  5. If the group want to try the sandwich in the traditional way, add a small amount of sugar on top of the sandwich. Ketchup and/or mayonnaise can also be served on the side as a condiment.
  6. Wait for the food to cool down, then time to try and enjoy!


This activity was a chance for young people to take part in cooking a dish from another country and take part in wider international adventures. Have you tried Korean food before? How did it taste? Would you eat it again?

This’s a great opportunity to try food from a different country. If you were going to Korea, what food would you take there for them to try?  Have a think about traditional British foods, such as fish and chips, Welsh cakes, Haggis or Yorkshire puddings. What do you think they would say about our traditional dishes?


All activities must be safely managed. You must complete a thorough risk assessment and take appropriate steps to reduce risk. Use the safety checklist to help you plan and risk assess your activity. Always get approval for the activity, and have suitable supervision and an InTouch process.


Teach young people how to use cooking equipment safely. Supervise them appropriately throughout. Make sure it’s safe to use and follow manufacturers’ guidelines for use.

Fires and stoves

Make sure anyone using fires and stoves is doing so safely. Check that the equipment and area are suitable and have plenty of ventilation. Follow the gas safety guidance. Have a safe way to extinguish the fire in an emergency.


Remember to check for allergies, eating problems, fasting or dietary requirements and adjust the recipe as needed. Make sure you’ve suitable areas for storing and preparing food and avoid cross contamination of different foods. Take a look at our guidance on food safety and hygiene.

You could consider pre-chopping all the ingredients before the activity to make it faster and easier. You could have a go at cooking this meal outside on an open fire for more of a challenge, too. For more or less of a challenge, change the sizes of the groups, but still make sure there is enough to do so everyone has the chance to take part.

Make sure that all the ingredients have been checked so that they are suitable for anyone’s dietary requirements or allergies. Think about vegan and gluten free options, which can be accommodated. You could pre-chop the ingredients if some members of the group may struggle to hold a knife and chop the ingredients. You could divide the activities up in each group, so young people can do the task that best suits them, such as mixing ingredients or cracking eggs. Have an adult or young leader with each group to help support everyone with chopping the food safely if they need it, too.

All Scout activities should be inclusive and accessible.

  • Look at other Korean street foods. Is there anything else you can make?
  • These recipes help us try new foods. Why not take a copy of the recipe home and cook it for your family to try?
  • There are some other activities from the Korean Jamboree that have been created. Have a look at our jamboree activities.

This activity gives young people the opportunity to use cooking skills and to share their jamboree adventures from the jamboree host country.
