Is there such thing as too much kimchi? I don’t think so. Or at least I haven’t reached that point yet. Today I have yet another kimchi dish. This time, in sandwich form. Yeah, you read the title right. It’s a grilled cheese sandwich with kimchi. Grilled kimcheese. See what I did there?
So, this dish doesn’t really need a recipe because nothing is easier to cook than grilled cheese, but… why not? I just had to. Imagine it: ooey, gooey cheese with crunchy, tangy, spicy kimchi.
Grilled Kimcheese Sandwich
makes 2 sandwiches
1/4 cup unsalted butter
4 slices sourdough bread
1/2 cup kimchi, chopped
4 ounces havarti cheese, sliced
- Heat a large pan over medium heat.
- Butter bread slices with butter on one side and place 2 of them in the pan butter side down.
- Distribute the 1/4 of the cheese onto each bread slice in the pan. Top with 1/4 cup kimchi, remaining cheese, and the remaining 2 slices of sourdough bread, butter side up.
- Cook for 1 minute or until golden brown and cheese has started to melt. With a spatula, flip sandwiches and cook until other side is golden brown and cheese is completely melted. Serve immediately.

What a great idea! Do you think other cheeses (swiss, cheddar, American) would work well?

Yes, I think other cheese would work out great! I just really, really love havarti. I’m hoping to try cheddar and swiss myself. If you get a chance, let me know how it tastes!

I love grilled cheese and I love kimchi, how have I never thought to combine the two?!
