Ex boyfriend toast

Ex boyfriend toast (전남 토스트) is a sweet toast that went viral in South Korea.

One day a girl wrote to her ex-boyfriend, not to ask him to get back together, but to know the recipe for the toast that he prepared for her when they were engaged. After the chat conversation was made public online, it went viral as did the recipe for the aforementioned toast.

In Korea it has become so popular that konbini have started selling it, already packaged.


  • 1 slice white bread for sandwich

  • 1 small piece butter

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 generous spoonful of spreadable cheese (I used Philadelphia)

  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  • Cook the blueberries with the sugar in a pan for a few minutes, until the juice forms. Crush a few berries every now and then. Keep aside.

  • Melt the butter in another pan and brown the slice of bread on both sides.

  • Place the slice of bread on a saucer and spread the cheese on it. Garnish with sweet blueberries.
