Quick and Easy Kimchi Grilled Cheese
This recipe for Kimchi Grilled Cheese is a satisfying and hearty sandwich featuring the Korean condiment paired with melted cheese on toasty sourdough bread.
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- 2 slices mozzarella cheese or any cheese you like
- 2 tablespoon kimchi drained
- 2 tablespoon mayonnaise or butter divided
Assemble the sandwich:
Place a slice of bread on a cutting board.
Lay a slice of cheese on the bread.
Add the drained kimchi over top.
Place on another slice of cheese and top off with the second slice of bread.
Spread 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise on the surface of the bread.
Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise to the pan and swirl it around to "melt."
Place the sandwich with the bottom (non-mayo) slice of bread on the pan.
Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the bottom is toasty and golden brown.
Carefully flip the sandwich and cook for another 2-3 minutes until golden brown, and the cheese is melted. You may need to lower the heat to medium-low or adjust accordingly.
Place the sandwich onto a cutting board and slice in half.
Garnish with cilantro, green onions or sesame seeds if desired.
