Did I just lose you with the title of this post? Are you making a face? Be honest….
I realize using the two words kimchi and cheese together in a sentence must sound utterly disgusting to my friends and family, but I promise…it’s really not. I mean I think of all the bowls of budae jiigae we consume here in Korea and without the square slices of cheddar cheese it just wouldn’t be the same. I’ve had kimchi carnitas fries, kimchi quesadillas, and now a kimchi grilled cheese. Not just any cheese, make it pepper jack pretty please.
I think I just might have died and gone to heaven.
Kimchi Grilled Cheese Sandwich
2 Slices of your favorite bread, I typically pick up something fresh from a local Korean bakery (Today it was named healthy loaf?)
2 Slices of your favorite cheese, I used pepper jack… cheddar would be an excellent pairing as well
1/8 Cup Mat kimchi, chopped
1 tablespoons butter, divided to butter your bread
Super simple and whipped up in a snap!
….Wait, do you think we’ve been in Korea to long? ….Nah!
Would you try out this slightly different grilled cheese combination?
