This is street food popular in Singapore and Malaysia, and it sounds very good. For this you can use baguettes or hot dog buns. When I make this, I may make the hot dog buns as well, I like a good challenge.

Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground beef and mix in the eggs, then mix in the shallots, chili, salt, and pepper.
  2. Butterfly or split open the baguettes or hot dog buns, keeping them intact on on side.
  3. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large non stick pan, when the pan is hot, spread some egg mixture on the cut sides of the baguettes and place cut side down in the pan, cook for about 2-3 minutes to set the egg and brown the beef (it is a this layer so it cooks quickly), then flip over and cook the other side for about 1 minute.
  4. Serve with toppings and sauces as desired.

Low cost.

Variant: 1. Use 2-3 cans sardines in olive oil, mashed in place of ground beef.
