Clever title aside, this Kimcheese Sandwich is tangy, sweet, ooey and gooey all at once. In short, it's fabulous.
So this sandwich. I know it may seem a little crazy, but just hear me out. It is one of the best variations of a grilled cheese … ever.
If you have never heard of kimchi, it's time to familiarize yourself with it. Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings. It’s got a little kick to it, but I love some heat!
I have to admit that this recipe is not my idea. Jaden of Steamy Kitchen posted this sandwich a while back. She adapted it from the cookbook Eat Your Vegetables by Joe Yonan.
Really, it is an incredible grilled cheese. And simple. Like ten minutes simple. You really just have to make it!
All you need are four easy ingredients. Bread, kimchi, cheddar cheese and a green apple or Asian pear.
Slice your apple (or pear).
Butter the outsides of your bread and add some cheddar cheese. So far, pretty familiar, right?
Add the apple slices (or pear).
The kimchi. There you go. THIS is the big difference!
Fry 'em up. Oh yeah!
Slice and eat! Just look at the cheese. It’s gorgeous … and so totally delicious!
