A Chinese flatbread sandwich stuffed with a shrimp and egg omelet which makes for a delicious and satisfying breakfast! This sandwich bread is a traditional Chinese bread that’s baked, layered and unleavened. It can be eaten toasted by itself or stuffed!
I’ve been shopping at the Asian grocery store more recently because I’ve been wanting hearty Asian soups, bok choy, Asian snacks and bakery breads. I was walking around H-Mart and stumbled on these green onion breakfast breads and knew I had to get them to try! Let me say, they did not disappoint! I finished the whole package SO quickly.
I sliced the breads in half, toasted them and stuffed it with a shrimp and egg omelet! This sandwich bread also known as “shaobing” is a traditional Chinese flatbread. I’ve eaten it toasted by itself, with egg itself or and egg omelet like this recipe here!
