Even though a bowl of noodle soup is a more preferred breakfast in Vietnam, we do have our own version of egg and bread for breakfast, which is Banh Mi Chao. Eggs, pate, fries, sausage are served in a hot skillet (chảo).

  • To make the sauce, you will heat some vegetable oil in a pan and fry some minced garlic and shallots, and chili. Sauté until fragrant.
  • Add 2tbsp of tomato sauce, you can also use ketchup, a tbsp of sriracha sauce, a tbsp of fish sauce, and half a cup of water, a little bit more sugar. Stir well and turn off the heat.
  • Cut half an onion into slices and cut potatoes into sticks. Cut sausage into about 3-inch length and then split the lower parts into four parts. So when you fry, it will become an octopus. Then deep fry the potatoes until golden brown.
  • Take the hot skillet or a pan over medium heat, and add some vegetable oil, add the sliced onion and fry for about 30 seconds to brown the edges.
  • Crack in two eggs, add the pate, potato fried, the sausage, and a few slices of ham. Drizzle the sauce.
  • Garnish with some cilantro, tomato, and cucumber slices.


  • This dish is usually served with some bread of your choice. In VN it would definitely be banh mi
